According to a press release issued today by U.S. Senator Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.), the ranking member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, the Senate rejected a resolution that would have nullified the NLRB’s revised union representation rules set to go into effect April 30, 2012.  The vote was reportedly 54 to 45 against adotption of the resolution. These changes will speed up the NLRB’s election process by which unions gain the certification to represent private sector employees.

Enzi stated, in part: “The NLRB will be tipping the scale with this ambush elections rule, which will go into effect next week.”
