Study Shows Companies Have Had More NLRB Election Success in 2012 (and Other Intriguing Statistics)
BNA's Research and Custom Solutions division analyzed data provided by the NLRB and came to a few surprising conclusions. The study shows that, although the number of elections has remained roughly the same from 2011 to 2012, unions have actually been less successful in 2012. This paradigm applies to representation and decertification elections.
The study also compares the relative success rates of different unions and analyzes these elections per major industry.
