Notwithstanding that the Obama-era “persuader rule” never actually took effect, permanently enjoined by the courts right before it kicked in, it should die for good next week. Legal challenges to the rule, a union-friendly mandate that significantly increased the disclosure requirement on employers when fighting union representation efforts, are technically still alive for a few more days. That said, the Office of Management and Budget has completed its review of a proposal to officially rescind the rule (a requirement before the rescission can be finalized) and has scheduled publication in the federal register for Monday, June 12. As to the court challenges, the Trump administration has until next Friday, June 16 to determine whether the government will continue to fight the aforementioned injunction. We’re betting they won’t and the “persuader rule” will be gone for good!
