Here’s a recent ruling and attempted regulation change that restaurant owners should be very aware of as it could have a massive impact on their ability to compete with other restaurants.
The National Labor Relations Board recently passed a new regulation reducing the amount of time business owners have to educate their workers on the risk of voting a union into the workplace. It is called the “Ambush Rule” and has recently been struck down by a federal judge. Read more about the decision below and continue to monitor this issue. Though independent restaurants aren’t normally a target for unions, if it is made siginificantly easier for unions to get into restaurants, it’s only a matter of time before they move from the chains to the independents.
