Organizing with co-workers can be a big decision

What happens if I sign a Union Card?

Signing a union card is just the first step of a thorough process in determining whether a company wants to obtain a union contract. In order to obtain this contract, a majority of employees must sign union cards, authorizing them in collective bargaining with their employer. A petition can then be filed with the NLRB (National Labor Relations Board), requesting that a secret ballot election be held to confirm that a majority of employees want the union. If that majority votes in favor of the union, the NLRB will certify the union as the official bargaining representative.

Union Card?

What are they?  A Union authorization card is a card signed by an employee signifying his or her desire to form a union.
