Labor Board Announces New Procedure For Voluntary Recognition Cases/Williams Kastner Labor & Employment Advisor


In another recent decision angering unions, the National Labor Relations Board

announced that it will implement a new procedure giving employees notice of their right to set

aside their employer’s voluntary recognition of a union. The need for such a procedure was

created by the National Labor Relations Board’s 2007 decision of Dana Corporation. This

decision modified the current rule blocking employee decertification petitions for a reasonable

period of time following an employer’s voluntary recognition of a union. Since voluntary

recognitions are occurring more frequently as a result of so-called “neutrality agreements” which

typically include card-check provisions, the decision and the resulting procedure are very

important. This article details what has occurred and what will occur under the procedure.
