News From the Region

Whether an employee who honors another union’s picket line is protected by the National Labor Relations Act can be a complicated issue. While under the Act employees have the protected right to engage in strikes, including sympathy strikes, there are potential factors that may deprive them of that protection. These factors may include a no-strike clause in a collective-bargaining agreement, which in certain circumstances may prohibit employees covered by that agreement from engaging in strikes, including sympathy strikes.

The National Labor Relations Board today issued a complaint alleging that 24 Hour Fitness USA, Inc. violated federal labor law by insisting that all employment-related disputes be resolved by individual arbitration.
