NLRB Memo: Effective Remedies in Organizing Campaigns

Originally posted on January 14, 2011 by Ryan

The National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) General Counsel Lafe Solomon released a memo on December 20, outlining the NLRB’s commitment to protecting employee free choice in unionization.

Solomon emphasized the importance of remedial efforts after NLRA violations.  One such remedial measure may be to require employers to read NLRB remedial notices to employees and to give unions access to employee bulletin boards.  Notice reading is said to have a greater “psychological impact” on employees during a union organizing drive than merely posting notices.

Another suggested remedial measure is ordering an employer to disclose employee names and addresses to a union during a campaign.
