Persuader Rule Repealed

July 25, 2018

Last week the Department of Labor announced that it was fully repealing the “Persuader Rule.”  Persuader, an Obama Administration pro-labor rule, would have made it more difficult for businesses, especially small businesses, to obtain legal counsel during a union organizing campaign.  The repeal will take effect in August.

NAW participated in the Persuader ruling-making through the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace (CDW), the labor issue coalition we help manage.  CDW field comments during the rule-making stage and joined in the legal actions challenging the rule in court.
