What happens after a representation petition is filed?

After a petition is filed, the Regional Director notifies any labor organization, agency, or activity that the parties have identified as being affected by issues raised by the petition, that a petition has been filed.  The Regional Director also will make a reasonable effort to identify and notify any other party affected by the issues raised by the petition.  See Section 2422.6(a).

When appropriate, the Regional Director may also direct the agency or activity to post notices of the filing of the petition.
