The U.S. House Education and Workforce Committee has made significant strides by advancing a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution aimed at countering the National Relations Labor Board’s (NLRB) joint employer rule. The committee's decision Dec. 12, which passed along party lines, reflects a concerted effort by the National Restaurant Association (NRA) to advocate for this resolution. Prior to the markup, the NRA collaborated with the Committee and issued a statement supporting the CRA, emphasizing their proactive involvement in opposing the rule's implementation. Politico highlighted the Association's active role in leading the business community's opposition efforts, showcasing a joint letter from state restaurant associations to Congress as a testament to their robust pushback against the new NLRB regulation.
There is also a Congressional hearing Dec. 13 seeking to impose the Congressional Review Act to cancel the joint employer standards proposed by the NLRB.
This development underscores the Association's strategic engagement with policymakers, leveraging their influence to oppose the NLRB's joint employer rule and rallying support for the CRA resolution among committee members.
