In a historically strong labor market, with two job openings/unemployed person, and a labor friendly administration in the White House, it’s unsurprising that in the first half of 2022 employees at 1,400 workplaces filed unionization petitions with the NLRB, up 69% Y-o-Y, and the highest level since 2015. Moreover, through 8/15/22, 15 strikes involving at least 1,000 workers have occurred compared to 16 in all of 2021.
