NLRB allows employers to give unions the boot
There’s been a significant policy change at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and it’s one that’s been in the works for a while. In the future, when workers grow dissatisfied with their union at their place of employment, the employer, within ninety days of the end of a contract, will be able to suspend bargaining and announce that the union will be ousted at the end of their current contract. The rights of the workers to unionize will still be recognized, but a new election will need to be held to reestablish the union or bring in a different one. (Bloomberg Law)

So....just to point out what should be stunningly obvious...

How exactly is it a victory for employees if the employer gets to choose to boot out the union? The article does not define what "evidence" is that allows the employer to state the union does not have majority support.

It's a victory for employees because the employees can present evidence that unions are no longer wanted.

The case linked at the bottom dictates what constitutes "evidence". The employer can't influence the decision and minimum 50% of represented employees no longer wish to be represented.
This case involves what happens when employees— with no im proper influence or assistance from management—provide their employer with evidence that at least 50 percent of the bargaining unit no longer wishes to be represented by their union

It's a win for employees because they are often forced into unions they do not want. This gives them bargaining power to keep the union interested in making the employee happy, not the union happy.
