In Dresser Industries, the National Labor Board held that an employee-filed petition for decertification does not permit an employer to refuse to bargain with the incumbent union. This Comment submits that the National Labor Relations Board should return to the rule that Dresser Industries expressly overruled. This Comment argues that the Telautograph Corporation rule requiring an employer to refuse to bargain, is the more workable and practical of the two conflicting rules and is more likely to achieve the legislative goals of the National Labor Relations Act.
