It probably isn’t a surprise to anyone, with the Biden administration strongly pushing unionization, but the total number of union representation petitions filed in the first three quarters of this fiscal year already dwarfs the total for all of FY21. The National Labor Relations board (NLRB) this week issued a press release reporting that 1,935 union election petitions had been filed through the first three quarters (October through June) of Fiscal Year 2022. With three months remaining in FY22, that figure represents a 56% increase over the 1,240 total petitions filed in all of FY21. In addition, NLRB reported that it had thus far already received 13,106 unfair labor complaints, an increase of 14.6% over the FY2021, with an additional three months left in the current year.
