All-too-often, union organizers trick employees into signing union authorization cards by deploying a variety of misleading tactics.
However, when employees find out they’ve been misled or made a mistake, they frequently want to get their signed cards returned.
If you signed a union authorization card as an employee, you DO have a right to ask the union for your card back. This is called “revoking” your union authorization card.
While unions will sometimes tell employees it is “too late,” this is false.
Unions have the ability to return signed union authorization cards—however, often, they choose not to.
Employees who have signed a union authorization card do have a right to demand to get their card back if they so choose.
Below are two links to use to revoke signed union authorization cards…

*Note: In order for card revocations to be valid, you should NOT attempt to have your employer assist you in the revoking of your signed union authorization card.
