Requests for review procedures are set forth in §§102.67(c) and 102.69(c) of the final rule.
- If the regional director issues a Direction and Order dismissing the petition, a request for review must be filed within 14 days after the decision issues.
- If the regional director issues a Decision and Direction of Election, a request for review may be filed at any time following the regional director’s decision until 14 days after a final disposition of the proceeding by the regional director. A “final disposition” occurs when the regional director issues a certification of representative, a certification of results, a dismissal, or an order to open and count challenged ballots. If there are post-election objections or determinative challenged ballots, a party may combine a request for review of the Decision and Direction of Election with a request for review of the regional director’s resolution of objections and challenged ballots if the party has not previously requested review of the decision and direction of election.
