Know Your Rights

Your Rights

Employees covered under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) have the legal right to form a union in their workplace. The NLRA States:

  • Section 7: “Employees shall have the right to self-organization, to form, join, or assist labor organizations to bargain collectively through representation of their own choosing, and to engage in other concerted activities for the purpose of collective bargaining…”
  • Section 8: “It shall be an unfair labor practice for an employer… to interfere with, restrain, or coerce employees in the exercise of the rights guaranteed in Section 7…”
  • View the full  text of the NLRA at www.nlrb.gov.

It is Illegal For Your Employer To

  • Make promises, bribe, or favor employees to convince them not to form a union;
  • Ask you what your opinion about the union is;
  • Threaten to fire or fire you for supporting the union;
  • Harass, discipline, transfer you to another location, call center, or other worksite for supporting the union.

About Strikes

  • In 98% of first contracts, the union negotiates successfully without a strike.
  • In CWA, the members only go out on strike during contract negotiations if a majority of these workers vote to strike.
