NLRB sued Arizona over union election laws
Clay Flaherty at 12:00 AM ET

On May 6, 2011, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) filed a lawsuit in the US District Court for the District of Arizona challenging the legality of an amendment to the Arizona Constitution that guarantees a vote by secret ballot for employee representation. The NLRB is an independent US agency charged with conducting elections for labor unions and remedying unfair labor practices. In its complaint, it alleged that Article 2 § 37 of the constitution actually limits the means by which employees elect their labor representation and conflicts with sections of the National Labor Relations Act.
