When is the proper time to file a petition?

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.
