Petitions seeking certification, unit clarification, or amended certification can be filed at any time using this form.
On decertification petitions, there is a “contract bar” if there is a valid, fully executed written agreement between the employer and the employee’s representative. In order to remove an existing contract bar to an election, a rival petition must be filed not earlier than ninety (90) and not later than sixty-one (61) days before the termination date for the contract.
For the health care industry the rule is
not more than 120 days or less than 90 days.
