JOHN R. LaBAR – U.S. District Judge David Norton, District of South Carolina, Charleston Division, has ruled (in Case Number No. 2:11-cv-02516-DCN, Chamber of Commerce of the United States of America and South Carolina Chamber of Commerce v. National Labor Relations Board, et al.) that the NLRB cannot require private employers to put up posters informing workers of their right to form a union.  Judge Norton said that the Board exceeded its authority from Congress when it approved the poster requirement last year. Judge Norton’s decision Friday conflicts with a ruling last month by Judge Amy Berman Jackson, District of Columbia, who found the posters were a reasonable means to make workers aware of labor laws. The rule was supposed to take effect on April 30.
