Coercion of employers in their choice of representative (Section 8(b)(1)(B))

It is unlawful for a union to restrain or coerce an employer in the selection of its representatives for union matters. For example, you may not directly force an employer to choose a particular representative, adversely affect a representative's performance of collective-bargaining or grievance-adjustment duties, or discipline a supervisor-member where the discipline may adversely affect the supervisor's performance of collective-bargaining or grievance-adjustment duties.

Section 8(b)(1)(B) of the Act makes it unlawful for a labor organization or its agents "to restrain or coerce . . . an employer in the selection of his representatives for the purposes of collective bargaining or the adjustment of grievances." For example, you may not

  • Directly force an employer to choose a particular representative.
  • Adversely affect the representative’s performance of collective-bargaining or grievance-adjustment duties on behalf of his employer.
  • Discipline a member who is also a supervisor where the discipline may adversely affect the supervisor’s performance of collective-bargaining or grievance-adjustment duties.
