A U.S. appeals court on Friday dismissed a bid by construction trade groups to block controversial Obama administration rules designed to speed up union elections, saying the National Labor Relations Board had broad authority to implement them.

Until the rule was passed, companies used delaying tactics to put off union elections in order to give them time to intimidate their workers. No more. The new NLRB rule has just been upheld by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. With the 4-4 deadlock that exists in the Supreme Court, this rule is going to stand.

Well, this is a good win...for the unions in the 5th Circuit. That would be Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi.

Still I believe the NLRB ruling is good Administrative law precedent in all Circuits until challenged again elsewhere.

If it can withstand a challenge in the 5th, it can withstand a challenge anywhere.
 
I must say, McConnell's refusal to let Obama replace Scalia on the court sure seems to working in Obama and the Left's favor.
