    NLRB Clears Path for Union Representation Without an Employee Vote

    December 19, 2023 // After Cemex, as explained in the GC memo, any violation by the employer during the campaign will automatically result in a bargaining order in favor of the union so long as the union can show that a majority of the employees signed a card or petition in favor of the union. The GC memo endorses this position regardless of the nature or severity of the violation. Moreover, equating a signature on a card or petition with unequivocal support for a union would seem to be a leap of faith—anecdotally, employees sign such documents for many reasons, including peer pressure, and may very well have a change of heart after learning more about working in a union shop.
