National Labor Relations Board
351 N.L.R.B. 434 (2007)
Two corporations, Metaldyne and Dana (defendants) entered into agreements with a potential labor union (the union). Under the agreements, Metaldyne and Dana promised to recognize the union after the union’s organizational campaign, provided that a majority of unit employees signed valid authorization cards. Within 45 days of Metaldyne and Dana’s recognition of the union, employees of each unit (plaintiffs) filed petitions with the National Labor Relations Board (the board) seeking a decertification election. The petitions were supported by over 50 percent and 35 percent of Metaldyne’s and Dana’s employees, respectively. The regional director for each unit dismissed the election petitions based on current law, which barred rival union petitions after an employer voluntarily recognized a union. The board reviewed the issue.
