Board
Announcement regarding
Union Activity in the
Workplace.

ARTICLE 7 NLRB
Employees have the right to unionize. That's the key take-away from the National Labor Relations Act Section 7.
Even if a company's workers don't belong to a union,
they have the right to "concerted activity," to improve their work environment or their situation as employees.
The National Labor Relations Board investigates employers who deny workers their rights.
