The NLRB conducts secret ballot elections. Hearst has agreed with our proposal for a mail ballot election so we can all vote safely. Once ballots are mailed to us, we will have a window of 10-14 days to ensure everyone receives a ballot and has time to mail it back to the NLRB. It is a secret ballot with two sealed return envelopes to ensure anonymity (disputed “supervisors’” ballots will be sequestered). Only the NLRB will have access to our ballots and representatives of this independent federal agency will count our ballots. The process will be very similar to an election for public office.
