NLRB – Average Time Between Petition Filing and Union Election is Just 23 Days.

The NLRB recently published the average time between the filing of a petition for an election and the election date under the NLRB’s new “quickie” election rules.  The average time (23 days) has decreased by two weeks in comparison to the prior election procedures.  This leaves significantly less time for companies to campaign against unions.  The election rules make it even more imperative for companies to promptly respond to unionization efforts in their workplaces.  For guidance on lawful campaign strategies, contact Selena Smith.
