I've been hearing as well as seeing on Facebook that UPS is reprimanding individuals for speaking about the contract and encouraging NO votes white at the same time UPS is giving PCM's and handing out fliers encouraging yes votes. This is BS and as far as I know is a violation of our rights. Any thoughts? What are my rights under the National Labor Relations Act? The NLRA is a federal law that grants employees the right to form or join unions; engage in protected, concerted activities to address or improve working conditions; or refrain from engaging in these activities. For more information, see our Employee Rights page. Employee Rights | NLRB A few examples of protected concerted activities are: Two or more employees addressing their employer about improving their pay. Two or more employees discussing work-related issues beyond pay, such as safety concerns, with each other. An employee speaking to an employer on behalf of one or more co-workers about improving workplace conditions. More information, including descriptions of actual concerted activity cases, is available on the protected concerted activity page. [h=1]Protected Concerted Activity[/h]The law we enforce gives employees the right to act together to try to improve their pay and working conditions or fix job-related problems, even if they aren't in a union. If employees are fired, suspended, or otherwise penalized for taking part in protected group activity, the National Labor Relations Board will fight to restore what was unlawfully taken away. These rights were written into the original 1935 National Labor Relations Act and have been upheld in numerous decisions by appellate courts and by the U.S. Supreme Court.
