Here is a good read involving Decertifying a Union? The Employerâ€™s Bill of Rights Link The National Labor Relations Act (â€œNLRAâ€) provides a process for employees to petition the National Labor Relations Board (â€œBoardâ€) for a â€œdecertification electionâ€ which can lead to the termination of the unionâ€™s status as bargaining agent. Only employees may petition for such decertification once they have obtained signatures from at least 30% of the employees/union members who are considered part of the bargaining unit. Once the employees have filed a petition, a hearing is usually conducted before the Board to determine the appropriateness of the petition, the Boardâ€™s jurisdiction and the unionâ€™s status as a labor organization. Following the hearing, the Board will typically issue a decision regarding whether or not the petition is appropriate and can proceed to an election. The election will usually be held within four to six weeks from the time employees file the petition. To prevail in ousting the union, the employees need a simple majority of those who actually vote; not a majority of those in the bargaining unit. Ties go to the union. 1) obtained signatures from at least 30% of the employees/union members who are considered part of the bargaining unit. The player reps, Trevor Linden and Bob Goodenow (executive committee) would be considered the bargaining unit for the PA. 32 people X 30% = 10 signatures for the petition. 2) The NLRB would have a hearing to determine the appropriateness of the petition unionâ€™s status as a labor organization. If the petition is approved by the NLRB the general vote for decertification commences 4-6 weeks after the petition was filed. In other words reason for decertification would have to be given to the NLRB from the PA. Decertification is not as easy as some posters would have us believe.
