The Washington Post, quoting from a story by the Associated Press, reported on Tuesday, April 17, 2012, that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit had “temporarily blocked the National Labor Relations Board from making millions of businesses put up posters informing workers of their right to form a union.” The court of appeals is reviewing an appeal of an earlier ruling by a U.S. District Judge for the District of Columbia upholding the notice posting regular, in part. 

The NLRB rule requiring all private employers subject to the jurisdiction of the NLRB to display the posters was take effect on April 30, 2012.  However, the court ruled that can’t be implemented until the legal challenges to regulation are resolved.
