.... One decision, though, that the NLRB issued last year that has been discussed with little understanding by the general public (including many small businesses) is the ability for unions to now unionize “micro unions (or units).”
Simply put, the NLRB now allows small, distinct groups of employees to unionize within a workplace, even if the vast majority of employees working around the small group don’t want to unionize. Further, under the NLRB’s new, micro-union concept, it is very easy for multiple unions to now unionize multiple small distinct groups of employees.
Now, under a recent decision under the NLRB’s Region 2 in New York City, the NLRB has ruled that the shoe salespeople within a large department store are eligible to vote to unionize, despite the fact that the entire store is populated by salespeople.
In New York City, Local 1102 of the Retail, Wholesale Department Store Union has targeted the shoe salespeople on the second and fifth floors for unionization at Neiman Marcus’ Bergdorf Goodman store. While Bergdorf Goodman argued that, if there is to be a union, all salespeople should have the right to vote, the NLRB disagrees.
