The Return of Card Check?

Earlier this month, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) announced that since October, union representation petitions filed at the NLRB had increased 57%, up to 1,174 from 748 during the first half of the federal fiscal year.

Now the Biden administration wants to resurrect decades-old doctrine that would all but eliminate secret ballot votes during organizing elections, while imposing a de facto “card check” process, according to this insight from OMA Connections Partner Fisher Phillips. This move could ultimately be the most impactful for manufacturers, the firm says — noting that the NLRB already “has a case on which it will rely to reinstitute the Joy Silk doctrine.”

OMA members can use this tool to tell their federal representatives to oppose card check legislation that is still pending on Capitol Hill. 4/14/2022
