Respect Picket Lines!
Updated On: Jul 05, 2004
 

Good Union Members Respect Picket Signs


A good union member is
extremely careful when confronted with a picket line situation.

 Picketing has been described by the Supreme Court as "the working (person's) means of communication."  A picket is a message to you that some of your fellow workers are engaged in a labor dipute and need your help.  It is your constitutional right as an American citizen to decide how you will respond to the picket.  Under the law, your union and union officials cannot help you make that decision.

WHEN A PICKET LINE IS ESTABLISHED on a job where a good union member is working that person:

LEAVES. DOES NOT TALK - JUST LEAVES.

READS the PICKET SIGN while leaving. 

DOES NOT hang around near the job.

Knows that ONCE A PICKET LINE IS ESTABLISHED, Field Representatives and other Union Officials are legally gagged and handcuffed from giving advice pertaining to THAT JOB. They can only tell if the picket line is AUTHORIZED.

Does NOT ALLOW THEMSELVES to be drawn into conversation with ANYONE at the job site.

GOOD UNION MEMBERS KNOW THEIR RIGHTS:

· You have the right NOT to work behind ANY picket line.

· You have the right to decide whether to walk off a job being picketed.

· They understand that their trade may be under attack next.

· Knows that a two gate system means a PICKET LINE and they have the RIGHT NOT TO WORK, no matter how may gates the employer sets up.

 

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS - BE PREPARED AHEAD OF TIME
KNOW HOW TO REACT TO PICKET LINES

You must decide,

"WHICH SIDE AM I ON?"
