Again, not a lawyer, but my initial impression was that it wasn't so much that the courts were blocking decertification per se, but the timing of it, which was viewed strictly as a negotiating ploy before an impasse had been reached. If an union can declare there is an impasse or lack of negotiation in good faith and furthermore can document such, they might have a legal basis for avoiding the 'negotiating ploy' label.

I'll check a couple other legal sites to see what I can drum up, unless some of the lurking lawyers here steps up.
