NLRB: You can ban union talk in employees’ e-mail

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) dealt a big defeat to unions recently by ruling that employers can ban their employees from using company e-mail for union-related business. The 3-2 decision ruled that it’s legal for employers to prohibit union-related e-mail as long as they had a policy barring employees from sending e-mail for “nonjob-related solicitations” for any outside organization. (The Guard Publishing Co., 351 NLRB No. 70)

“An employer has a ‘basic property right’ to regulate and restrict employee use of company property,” the NLRB’s majority wrote. To read the board decision, go to www.nlrb.gov/research/decisions, click on “Board Decisions” and scroll down to opinion 351-070.
