Some employers in the private sector hear the concept of “unfair labor practices” and think it applies to employees represented by labor unions. However, unfair labor practices essentially include employer or union violations of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).
What Is an Unfair Labor Practice?
Actions considered unfair labor practices include the following:
- Coercing workers not to join unions;
- Threatening to close a worksite or plant if workers decide to join or form a union;
- Promising extras to employees if they don’t join the union; and
- Forcing workers to quit because of legitimate union activities.
