Labor Law Notes Economic Strike The economic strike is an action taken for higher wages, shorter hours, better working conditions, health and welfare plans, etc. Employees CAN be replaced PERMANENTLY. Section 8(b)(4) – secondary picketing –purpose of truthfully advising the public union encourages the public or customers to not buy a certain product from a certain manufacture, but cannot tell others to not shop at a certain place that sells the product. Section 8(b)(7) – recognitional picketing – asking the company to recognize the union as the exclusive bargaining unit. It is a picketing that forces an employer to recognize a union as representative of its employees. Prohibits when: There is another union Been an election within 12 months Legal Primary Picketing – peaceful picketing against the employer with which it has dispute: Peaceful picketing against the primary employer is a protected activity under the NLRA Even though primary picketing is intended to persuade customers to cease doing business with the primary employer, such picketing is allowed under Section 8(b)(4) as long as it is peaceful. Kroger – Union in Disputer – Union Pickets Kroger Secondary Picketing – Union has dispute with a Purity diary Manufacturer. Purity sells its milk to Kroger and the Union pickets Kroger and tells the customers not to buy Purity. Union can picket Kroger to encourage the customers not to buy the milk, but they cannot tell them not to shop at Kroger. If this is done, it is a Section 8(b)(4) violation. If the Union pickets the neutral employer, it may violate the 8(b)(4)(B) section. If the NLRB holds the union’s picketing at a secondary location against primary employers, then it did not violate the section 8(b)(4)(B). The Burma Road entrance was used as a “reserved gate” system during strikes. The union legally permitted the pickets only at this gate. In this case, the union used all three entrances for picketing and engaged in secondary activity by unlawfully distributing pamphlets. In this case, the Union violated Section 8(b)(4) by targeting neutrals at other two gates. If an employer is not neutral, it is performing work normally done by the workers of a primary employer, which are the ones on strike (ally doctrine). These independent employers are not protected by Section 8(b) (4) because they knowingly did work which would otherwise be done by the striking employers and was paid.
