The Law, Your Rights and Protection

THE LAW SAYS YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO JOIN A UNION.

 You have the legal right under Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act to join or support a union and to:

 1. Attend meetings to discuss joining a union.

 2. Read, Distribute, and discuss union literature (as long as you do this in non-work areas, during non-work times, such as during breaks or lunch hours.)

 3. Wear union buttons, T-shirts, stickers, hats, or other items on the job.

 4. Sign a card asking your employer to recognize and bargain with the union.

 5. Sign petitions or file grievances related to wages, hours, working conditions, and other job issues.

 6. Ask other employees to support the union, to sign union cards or petition, or to file grievances.

 PROTECTION FROM EMPLOYEE ACTION UNDER SECTION 8 OF THE NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS ACT.

 Your employer cannot legally punish or discriminate against any worker because of union activity. For example, your employer cannot legally do the following:

 1. Threaten to or actually fire, lay off, discipline, harass, transfer, or reassign employees because they support the union.

 2. Favor employees who don’t support the union over those who do in promotions, job assignments, wages, hours, enforcement of rules, or any other working condition.

 3. Shut down the work site or take away any benefits or privileges employees already enjoy in order to discourage union activity.

 4. Promise employees a pay increase, promotion, benefit, or special favor if they oppose the union.
