The National Labor Relations Board ruled today that a group of Macy's employees numbering about forty could form an organized "micro union" without having to obtain the consent of their remaining colleagues. Retailers were unhappy with the decision made by the NLRB stating that unions will be able to pick and choose which employees are most likely to organize. David French of the National Retail Federation stated that the move was "nonsensical and impractical." Due to the NLRB ruling, the Macy's employees who work in cosmetics and fragrances can vote on whether or not they want to form their own union. The United Food and Commercial Workers union petitioned the NLRB to be able to represent the group of workers, however the workers can still choose if they want any representation at all. It is likely that this final vote will occur at some point in the next few weeks. If the Macy's workers do form an organized union, but the store will not recognize it as such, it could go all the way to the federal appeals court.
