The NLRB Continues Preaching to Your Non-Union Employees
Posted: June 20, 2012
Despite recent legal and electoral setbacks, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is determined to encourage your employees to seek strength in numbers.
On Monday, the NLRB unveiled a new Web site (here). A press release (here) from the Board describes the site as telling "the stories of more than a dozen recent cases involving protected concerted activity, which can be viewed by clicking points on a map."
In the press release, Board Chairman Mark Gaston Pierce also explains the intended purpose of the new site:
We think the right to engage in protected concerted activity is one of the best kept secrets of the National Labor Relations Act, and more important than ever in these difficult economic times. Our hope is that other workers will see themselves in the cases we've selected and understand that they do have strength in numbers.
Even though unions are having trouble maintaining their foothold in the private sector, the Board is doing what it can to encourage unionization. Now is no time for employers to rest on their laurels. If you want to keep your workplace union-free, then educate your employees and supervisors and, above all, give your employees the respect that they deserve.
