Boeing knows the law but chooses to ignore it. Boeing is breaking the law by using tactics outside the legal limits to keep your co-workers suppressed with fear. This is just wrong, as Americans we all agree everyone should have their rights protected and enforced. Here are examples of your federally protected rights under the law that you may want to make management aware of.
Here is what the Act (as amended by Taft-Hartley) says about your right to organize and assists a union:
Sec. 7–Right of employees
Employees shall have the right to self-organization, to form, join or assist labor organizations, to bargain collectively through representatives of their own choosing, and to engage in other concerted activities for the purpose of collective bargaining or other mutual aid or protection, and shall also have the right to refrain from any or all of such activities except to the extent that such right may be affected by an agreement requiring membership in a labor organization as a condition of employment as authorized in section 158(a)(3) of this title.
The Act protects and guarantees your rights to do any of the following without fear of reprisal from the employer:
IT’S YOUR RIGHT to attend and take part in IAM meetings.
IT’S YOUR RIGHT to invite your coworkers to attend and take part in IAM meetings.
IT’S YOUR RIGHT to distribute IAM material on the employer’s property during non-working time.
IT’S YOUR RIGHT to ask your coworkers to distribute IAM material on employer’s property during non-work time and in non-work areas.
IT’S YOUR RIGHT to join the IAM.
IT’S YOUR RIGHT to wear IAM buttons, T-shirts, caps and jackets on the employer’s property during working and non-working time. (Provided such items or objects do not create a safety hazard.)
IT’S YOUR RIGHT to meet and discuss the IAM with your coworkers on the employer’s property during non-work time and in non-work areas. (Provided the meeting does not create a disturbance in the plant.)
IT’S YOUR RIGHT to write, sign and distribute letters, flyers or petitions supporting the IAM.
IT’S YOUR RIGHT to ask questions and take notes during captive audience meetings conducted by the employer.
IT’S YOUR RIGHT to make supportive statements for the IAM during captive audience meetings conducted by the company.
Don’t let management infringe on your rights!
