NLRB officials are approving mail-in ballot elections as a way to keep organizing efforts alive during the pandemic. Examples of this include Instacart workers in Chicago voting to join UFCW, Johnson Control workers in San Antonio voting to join SMART, and Curaleaf Massachusetts (a medical marijuana dispensary) in Boston voting to join UFCW.

The Board also ruled this month that the election at Hearst Media will move forward, despite multiple objections by Hearst. A date for the election has not been set.
