Contract Bar Doctrine

Once a contract is executed, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) does not usually permit a representation election in the unit covered by the contract until the contract expires up to a 3 year limit. This rule applies to a petition by another union to represent the employees, a petition filed by the employees to decertify, or a petition filed by the employer.
