What Is Your Story?





National Labor Relations Board Administrative Law Judge David I. Goldman slammed a complaint filed by the National Right to Work Legal Foundation against IBEW Local 58.  The complaint was that the union violated the law by having a rule that required persons resigning from the union under Michigan Right to Work “to resign in writing, in person, and show identification.”  He noted that if the procedure “poses an undue hardship, he or she may contact the union hall and make any other arrangements to verify identity.”

The Judge said “the mere maintenance of this policy does not, on its face, amount to restraint or coercion prohibited by Section 8(b)(1)(A).”  He went on to question “does this policy “restrict” resignation on its face?”  And he answered, “it does not, in any way that the term has ever been understood heretofore.”
