ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- BNA Books, a division of specialized news and information publisher BNA, today announces the publication of the 2011 Cumulative Supplement to The Developing Labor Law: The Board, the Courts, and the National Labor Relations Act, Fifth Edition. The treatise and its 2011 Cumulative Supplement provide an authoritative, balanced perspective on the legal rights and duties of employees, employers, and unions; procedures under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA); and remedies under the NLRA.
The treatise includes discussion of unfair labor practices and representation case issues arising from neutrality agreements that the Board is considering; the economic weapons available to unions and employers; preemption, including updates on litigation involving conflicts between the NLRA and state laws; the duty to bargain; and the relationship between the NLRA and bankruptcy, immigration, and other federal statutes.
The 2011 Cumulative Supplement covers developments since 2008 under the National Labor Relations Act and related labor statutes, including issues concerning:
- Whether the Board's decisions have expanded protected concerted activity under Section 8(a)(1)
- The Board's revision of its remedies—daily compounding of interest in back-pay awards, and electronic notice postings.
- The Supreme Court's New Process Steel case, which invalidates hundreds of two-Member Board decisions
- Whether unions may lawfully display large stationary banners in front of a neutral employer's business to alert the public to the fact that the neutral employer is doing business with a nonunion employer with whom the union has a dispute
- Whether a union's requirement that Beck objectors renew their objection annually violated the union's duty of fair representation
- Whether an employer's agreement to recognize a union prior to that union's recognition as bargaining representative is lawful
