NEW YORK — The National Labor Relations Board has set May 30 as the date of an election to determine whether employees of a Perry Ellis International Inc. distribution center in Miami want to join UNITE, according to an official at the company and an union organizer.
That’s because the NLRB has ruled that a previous election, in which employees voted against the union by a margin of 55 to 49, was unfair because it found that Perry Ellis violated labor laws in the runup to the election. However, UNITE officials said they are advocating that a card-check process — in which a neutral third party counts the number of union cards signed to determine whether a majority of employees support the union — be used to ratify the union.
