NAM Hits the Airwaves Against Ambush Elections

By April 23, 2012Labor Unions

Politico’s Influence column, the daily focus on government relations, lobbying, and issue advocacy, covered the NAM’s efforts against the NLRB’s ‘ambush elections’ rule. 

NAM JOINS IN THE NLRB PUSHBACK: The National Association of Manufacturers and the National Federation of Independent Business are up with radio spots targeting members in Virginia, Montana and Missouri ahead of a vote in the Senate next week to disapprove of the NRLB’s “ambush” elections rule. The ads slam “unelected bureaucrats in Washington” for the rules that they say will make it harder for business to grow. “Rather than enforce existing rules, the National Labor Relations Board is imposing new regulations like ambush elections, overturning decades of labor laws to benefit special interests at the expense of hard working taxpayers in Virginia,” the ad says. The trade groups are also doing online ad buys to get the message across.
