Industrial Relations Legislation – Week 1 Chapter 13 Employers are covered under the NLRA. This law allows employees to have the right to form, join, and assist labor organizations, bargain through representatives of their own choice, or engage in other activities with mutual aid. You cannot be a concerted union member and have mutual aid under the rights of Section 7. The NLRA requires only that the union be designated by a majority of the employees. This can involve either voluntary recognition or secret elections. o Voluntary Recognitions is rare, but Volkswagen is an example of a company that did recognize and created under voluntary recognition. o Secret Election must have a percentage over 50% when it comes to the employees agreeing on if a union must be created. Unions must petition for election and authorization cards with the signatures of at least 30% of the employees requesting a Union. These must be sent to the National Labor Relations Board that will then order that the company must do a Secret Ballot election. o If over 50% sign the authorization card requesting for a Union to be formed, the company can waive the election and recognize itself as a Union. o The National Labor Relations Board can order an employer to recognize a union if the employer has engaged in Unfair Labor Practices in the past.
