Short Paper - Organizing a Union in a Workplace This paper will examine, and identify the key elements of organizing a union in the workplace, and the difference or the organization in a public sector versus a private sector. The following are the main steps taken by employees to establish a union. 1. Organize a Committee Identify leaders Educate the committee regarding the benefits of forming a union. This would also include the laws, and procedures involved, as well as any issues that the company might raise during the campaign. 2. Build Interest Engage with employees to sign cards that will authorize the organization. This is also the time where the campaign will probably go public. Publicly identify the committee members. 3. Launch a campaign Organize a list of qualified voters to be given to the NLRB, then place notices regarding the election in common places where workers congregate within the company so they will be visible to all employees. 4. Hold an election—this is held within 30 days from the order of the NLRB.
