ABSTRACT
This article deals with a study conducted by the U.S. National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) regarding elections in unorganized units during 1955-1966. The NLRB derived the data from records of representation election petitions. A table showing the number of new organizing elections and voters is presented. The proportion of union victories and voters selecting unionization have not increased during the Kennedy-Johnson years. Approximately 60 percent of the elections and between 75 and 80 percent of the eligible voters were in manufacturing.
