Unfair Labor Practice

Q: How is an unfair labor practice defined?  

The National Labor Relations Act (also known as the Wagner Act of 1935) defines five unfair labor practices of employers. 1. Interfering with, restraining, or coercing employees in the exercise of their rights guaranteed in Section 7 of the Act. 2. Dominating or interfering with the formation or administration of any labor organization, or contributing financial or other support to it. 3. Discriminating in regard to hiring or tenure of employment or any term or condition of employment so as to encourage or discourage membership in any labor organization. 4. Discharging or otherwise discriminating against employees because they file charges or give testimony under the Act. 5. Refusing to bargain collectively with the duly chosen representative of employees.
