NLRB Developments and the Impact on Construction: Picketing and Bannering
What is a lawful picket?
Picketing of jobsites is a frequent occurrence in the construction industry. Each year unions set up hundreds of pickets designed to exert pressure on one or more employers. Most picketing situations in the construction industry result from mixing union and non-union subcontractors on the same worksite. Picketing of jobsites often involves a chess game between the general contractor and/or subcontractor and the union. The rules of the game are dictated by the National Labor Relations Act. This white paper reviews what lawful and unlawful pickets are; and explains bannering and how it differs from picketing.
