by | Oct 22, 2020 | AFL-CIO, Legal, NLRB, SEIU, Unions, USW

Even though the NLRB has provided guidance for safely conducting in-person voting for union representation elections, most regional directors and the board itself have been ruling in favor of mail ballot elections in most, if not all, cases where the issue has been raised by the employer.

Labor unions and environmental groups joined together to sue the federal government, claiming a failure to provide adequate reusable respirators, N95 masks, gloves and other personal protective equipment (PPE) to essential workers amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Among the labor organizations involved are the AFL-CIO, United Steelworkers, Service Employees International Union, American Federation of Teachers & Amalgamated Transit Union.
