DON’T S.P.I.T. — Labor Relations Rules of Engagement During Union Organizing Campaigns

During union organizing campaigns, many employers and their supervisors find themselves seemingly paralyzed by the restrictions placed upon them under the National Labor Relations Board’s rules of conduct in terms of what is considered objectionable and what is not objectionable speech.

Contrary to what some may believe, employers do have a legal right to speak to their employees about the ramifications of unionization so long as their speech is not objectionable.

The following is a brief presentation that is given to employers and their supervisors (‘agents’) before or during union organizing campaigns.

NOTE: Before proceeding to view this presentation, if you are an employer who is experiencing union organizing activity, it is strongly recommended that you use competent labor counsel to guide you through what is often a legally-complicated process.
