The NLRB responded to the decision of Judge Boasberg today.  In a press release, the NLRB announced that it will suspend implementation of the election rule.  Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon has also withdrawn the memorandum issued to the regional offices at the end of last month explaining how to implement the rule.  Finally, Chairman Pearce (D) said that the NLRB was reviewing the court’s decision and considering how to respond. 

Labor professionals with election petitions that were filed on or after April 30 should review the press release.  It contains information on how the NLRB will process these cases.
