Rite Aid

Date: August 11, 2011


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.  In voting to revisit the Dana case, the Obama NLRB has signaled its intent to deny workers the ability to vote according to their conscience and remove an unwanted union from their workplace.  NFIB has filed an amicus brief with the Board, urging it not to revoke the new protections accorded to workers swept into union ranks through card check forced unionism.
