Lamons Gasket Co. v. SWIU

Date: August 11, 2011

National Labor Relations Board

In a 3-2 decision on August 27, the Board voted to review a landmark 2007 case, Dana Corporation, in which it granted dissenting workers the right to undo a successful (i.e., employer-recognized) union card check campaign and demand a secret ballot election.  Prior to this decision, employees had no way to demand an election if the employer agreed to recognize a union based on authorization cards.  Workers across the country have already used elections to kick out unwanted unions, demonstrating the unreliability of card check instant organizing campaigns.  Workers frequently sign union authorization cards due to union organizers’ intimidating tactics or even outright lies about what signing a card means.
