Legislative Update: Limits Union’s Right To Access

Last month, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued an important decision clarifying whether and when an employer may lawfully exclude union organizers from its premises. The decision reverses decades of precedence, referred to as the ‘public space’ exception, in which employers had to allow nonemployee union representatives access to public areas of their property to engage in promotional activity. The reason was their exclusion was considered to be unlawful discrimination, a violation of the NLRA. But on June 14, the Board abolished that exception and held that employers no longer have to allow non-employee union representatives access to public areas unless specific circumstances exist, such as the employer discriminates against the union by permitting similar groups access.

From this employers can regulate conduct in their public spaces, including rules prohibiting third party solicitation. Rules/Practices should be written in a neutral, broad fashion so as not to target or single out union or organizing activities. Likewise, enforcement of such rules should be fair and balanced.
