  2. This week, we update you on two major developments from the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB” or “Board”) and this year’s abridged timeline to submit EEO-1 data.

    Union Activity Surges

    The National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB” or “Board”) recently released data on the increase in petitions filed by unions for representation elections in the country. In the first half of fiscal year 2022, petitions filed by unions for representation elections jumped 57 percent from the same period last year.

    NLRB GC Takes Aim at “Captive Audience” Meetings and Supports Union Organizing

    The Biden administration has been vocal in supporting unionization efforts and making it easier for unions to win elections. Recently, NLRB General Counsel Jennifer Abruzzo issued a memo indicating that her office will be asking the Board to find “captive audience” meetings, in which employers seek to convince workers to vote against union representation, to be unlawful and violate the National Labor Relations Act. The memo reflects the General Counsel’s goal of limiting the ability of an employer to campaign and share its views with employees before they vote.

    In a brief recently filed with the Board, General Counsel Abruzzo asked the Board to adopt a requirement that an employer recognize and bargain with a union that claims majority support unless the employer can establish that it has a “good faith doubt” as to the union’s claim of majority status.

    Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Opens EEO-1 Data Collection, with Fast Timeline

    Employers are racing to submit their 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 data by May 17, a significantly shorter window than the previous two years.
