NLRB drags out Teamsters decert vote

Secret-ballot could oust union in labor-state, workers denied raises while they wait

Workers at a Northwoods plant are facing some roadblocks as they try to get out of their union. In June, unionized employees of Printpack's Rhinelander (WI) facility collected more than 60 signatures for a decertification petition. That number was enough for an additional petition on behalf of Printpack's employees to ask for the union's removal The goal of the petition was to remove Teamsters Local 662 as the bargaining agent for the plant, resulting in a union-free workplace.

Now, the National Labor Relations Board's regional office is saying they will not process either of the petitions.

Currently, Printpack workers are operating without a contract.

Union members remain ineligible for pay raises and increased benefits due to lack of contract negotions.

Both the Printpack employees and the Printpack Corporation have filed appeals to the NLRB's review board in Washington, D.C.
