On October 25, Fuyao Glass America, the UAW and the NLRB reached an election agreement for an NLRB-supervised, secret-ballot election at the Fuyao plant in Moraine, Ohio. Approximately 1,500 Fuyao production and maintenance workers will vote on whether to designate the UAW as their collective bargaining agent. The election is set for Wednesday, November 8 through Thursday, November 9.
The UAW filed its election petition on October 16. Thus, there will be only 23 days between the filing of the election petition and the opening of the polls for the vote. The short time frame demonstrates the continuing vitality of the “quickie” election rule the NLRB adopted in 2014.
The NLRB is expected to announce the results of the election around 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 9.
