ABSTRACT
The article discusses the decertification of labor unions in the U.S. An overview of the history of such activity from the 1930's to the late 1970's is presented. The evolution of the official policies of the U.S. National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is discussed and information on a trend involving an increase in decertification activity is analyzed. Both the number of decertification petitions filed with the NLRB and the number of decertification elections conducted annually increased dramatically during the 1970's. This raised concerns about the health of the labor movement, especially in light of the dwindling percentage of victories for unions involved in decertification elections.
