BUSINESS LAW CASE QUESTIONS 2
Case 1
The company has no right to bar the workers who favour the union members from using
the lunchroom to hand out petitions and urging other drivers to sign authorization cards (Beatty,
Samuelson, & Sánchez, 2019). Under the National Labor Relations Board ruled on June 14,
2019, employers have the right to ban union representatives from promoting union business in
the public spaces within their facilities such as lunchrooms only if the union representatives are
not employees of the company. Before this rule was passed, nonemployee union representatives
were allowed by the labour board to use workplace public spaces such as cafes to promote their
goals. Union members mostly focus on getting public spaces that would allow them to reach a
larger number of employees. The use of cafes and lunchrooms is appropriate even though some
of the workers might be opposed to the ideas promoted by the union.
The rules dictate that a company can only prohibit the distribution of union pamphlets or
brochures if, this happens in work areas. However, in the cases where the communication
happening is in nonwork areas such as the lunchroom, during nonwork hours, then the employer
has no right to bar the workers from the union the public facility. The sign presented by the
employer, prohibiting further union efforts in the lunchroom can be considered illegal (Beatty,
Samuelson, & Sánchez, 2019). The employer should instead look to identify a way to balance
out the hours between the unionized members and non-unionized members to avoid conflict
without any legal notices. Such an effort will promote peaceful coexistence and further avoid
conflict within the union. It is important to understand that union efforts can be competitive to
employers goals, but there is a need to remain focused on the needs of the employees as long as
it is within the law.
