A union attempting to organize an employer will often file an unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) against that employer. While there are many different legal bases for such a charge, they typically involve some claimed discrimination by the employer against the union or a sympathetic employee.
Unions often use such charges to control an employer during an organizing drive. In some cases, such charges can lead to NLRB orders that job applicants be hired or terminated employees be reinstated, and that such individuals be provided with backpay and back benefits. In extreme cases, such charges can force an employer into a collective bargaining relationship it does not want.
For these reasons, it is important that an employer faced with an unfair labor practice charge be represented by counsel familiar with both the procedures and substantive law of the NLRB.
