SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

The National Labor Relations Board will hold an open public meeting on Wednesday, November 30, 2011, at 2:30 p.m. The purpose of the meeting will be to vote on how to proceed in this rulemaking proceeding. No public testimony or comments will be received.

On June 22, 2011, the NLRB published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) (76 FR 36812), proposing to amend its rules and regulations governing the filing and processing of petitions relating to the representation of employees for purposes of collective bargaining with their employer. In addition to the comment procedure outlined in the NPRM, the NLRB provided another opportunity for interested persons to provide their views to the Board on this important matter at an open public meeting. This public meeting was held on July 18-19, 2011, with 66 witnesses testifying before the Board. Thereafter, the deadline for filing initial public comments was August 22, 2011, and the deadline for filing reply comments was September 6, 2011. Over 65,000 written comments have been received and analyzed. The Board must now decide how to proceed in this matter.

Persons desiring to attend the meeting must notify the NLRB staff, in writing, at the above listed physical or email address, by the deadline posted. Attendees are reminded to bring a photo identification card with them to the public meeting in order to gain admittance to the building. Due to space limitations in the meeting room, an overflow room has been established in the Margaret A. Browning Hearing Room (Room 11000), where persons will be able to observe the meeting by video conference. The meeting will also be available for viewing on the Internet.

Agenda: The meeting will be limited to issues related to the proposed amendments to the Board's rules governing representation-case procedures. A copy of the NPRM may also be obtained from the NLRB's Web site at: http://www.nlrb.gov/nprm.

Dated: November 18, 2011.

Mark Gaston Pearce,

Chairman.
