RIP NLRB Poster Requirement

The long-troubled NLRB poster requirement appears to finally and officially be dead. Last year,
two different circuit courts struck down the rule that would have required employers to display a poster about NLRA rights.

Now, the NLRB has issued an announcement, including:
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has decided not to seek Supreme Court review of two U.S. Court of Appeals decisions invalidating the NLRB’s Notice Posting Rule, which would have required most private sector employers to post a notice of employee rights in the workplace.
That pretty much settles that (unless the NLRB decides to spontaneously reinstate the rule in other circuits - which I find implausible).
