How To Kick A Union Out Of Your Workplace

Although unions will often try to trick workers into thinking that if they bring a union into their workplace, they can easily kick the union back out, the process is extremely difficult and can only occur if certain conditions are met

In addition, unions will often do everything in they can to block employee efforts to decertify the union.

These efforts often include filing frivolous charges with the National Labor Relations Board, to placing members on trial.

If workers are committed to kicking a union out of their workplace, there two ways they can go about it:

  1. through a NLRB-conducted secret-ballot decertification election, and
  2. by demanding your employer “withdraw recognition” of the union.

In both cases, however, there are time restrictions in which workers can exercise either of these two options.



NOTE: Employers cannot assist their employees in decertifying a union.

Please note: Unions members need to be aware that decertification is more than likely against their union’s rules. Therefore, union members should be sure to obtain a copy of their union constitution prior to trying to decertify their union, as unions often have the ability to place their on trial for violating union rules.
