NLRB Scraps Trump-Era Union-Busting Proposal Against Student Workers At Private Colleges

Student workers at private universities who wish to unionize received good news today from Washington.

Bloomberg reports:

“The National Labor Relations Board scrapped a proposal that would have made student workers at private universities ineligible to form or join unions.

‘The Board has decided to withdraw this rulemaking proceeding at this time in order to focus its limited resources on competing Agency priorities, including the adjudication of unfair labor practice and representation cases currently in progress,’ the NLRB said in a statement Friday.

The move to abandon the proposal, which was released in September 2019 but never finalized, makes it likely that student workers at private universities will retain their right to unionize for the remainder of the Biden presidency, and possibly longer. The withdrawal was posted in a Federal Register notice Friday morning.”
