Reuters: NLRB considering abolishing or scaling back contract bar doctrine

Reuters is reporting that the National Labor Relations Board has put out a call for amicus briefs regarding the status of contract bar doctrine.

The doctrine, a long established precedent observed by the NLRB, prevents union decertification elections for three years after a collective bargaining agreement comes into effect.

The doctrine is being challenged by a poultry plant employee in Delaware, represented by the National Right to Work Defense Foundation, who claims that the precedent restricts employees "free choice."
