The article reports that the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in the U.S. is expected to issue a ruling that would reclassify many union members. The NLRB is the federal agency that certifies union workplace elections. The ruling would make organizing employers more difficult since fewer workers would be eligible. It would affect Long Island, New York where the largest employers are union companies and labor-affiliated not-for-profits.
