Obama vetoes Republican bid to block union election rules

Obama delivers remarks before signing a disapproval of S. J. Resolution 8, a joint congressional resolution that would block a National Labor Relations Board rule allowing faster union elections, in the Oval Office at the White House in WashingtonU.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday vetoed a measure by Republicans in Congress that would have blocked a government labor agency's rules designed to speed up the time it takes to unionize workers. The rules would shorten the period between a union filing a petition to represent workers and an election, from the current median of 38 days to as little as 14 days. Employers would be required to share workers' names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses with unions. The National Labor Relations Board adopted the rules last year and they are set to take effect April 14.
