After a petition is filed with the Board seeking to establish or alter a bargaining unit, an evidentiary hearing is scheduled to resolve the issue. Notices of these hearings are provided to the employer for posting in the workplace and links to copies of these notices are provided below. Sometimes a hearing is not necessary because the parties come to an agreement on the make up of the bargaining unit.

After an election petition is filed and the election is scheduled, notices of the upcoming election are sent to the employer for posting in the workplace. Links to copies of these election notices are provided below. An election is not necessary if the employer voluntarily recognizes the union as the employees' bargaining agent.
