In two recent decisions, the Board addressed the IBEW's application to represent electricians at Strabag, a craft carve-out from the intervener CLAC's all employee bargaining unit. The employer and CLAC moved to have the application dismissed on the basis that the application was untimely and that it was barred by section 7(10) of the Act. The Board concluded that a change in bargaining unit in a certification application does not constitute a withdrawal of an application, and as such, IBEW's application was not barred under section 7(1). Additionally, the Board concluded that the Voluntary Recognition Agreement between Strabag and CLAC was unambiguous and was not in effect at the time the application was filed by IBEW.
