National Labor Relations Board





Conduct Elections

To start the election process, a petition and associated documents must be filed, preferably electronically, with the nearest NLRB Regional Office showing support for the petition from at least 30% of employees. NLRB agents will then investigate to make sure the Board has jurisdiction, the union is qualified, and there are no existing labor contracts or recent elections that would bar an election. Shortly after the petition is filed, the employer is required to post a Notice of Petition for Election in conspicuous places, including all places where notices to employees are customarily posted. If the employer customarily communicates with employees in the petitioned-for unit through electronic means, the employer must also distribute the Notice of Petition for Election electronically to those employees.



What is the organizing process?

and how long will it take?

Forming with SPFPA – Here’s the online interest card: https://spfpa.org/cardform Employees are in the card signing stage. When enough employees show support by signing SPFPA Membership Cards. The SPFPA will petition the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and ask that a secret ballot vote take place.

After a petition is filed, the NLRB will conduct a secret ballot election typically, elections are held on the earliest practicable date after a director’s order or authorization. Employees will now have an opportunity to vote YES in favor of unionization by SPFPA. If over 50% of those voting cast a vote in favor of Union representation, YOU WIN your election and are now protected by SPFPA. SPFPA and the negotiating process will begin as soon possible.
