NLRB General Counsel Launches 10(j) Injunction Initiative to Combat Employer Threats and Coercion During Organizing Campaigns

In a new memorandum issued today, National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) General Counsel Abruzzo announced an initiative to seek prompt federal court injunctions under Section 10(j) of the National Labor Relations Act when workers have been subject to threats or other coercive conduct during an organizing campaign. The initiative aims to protect worker rights and deter statutory violations in the earliest phases of unlawful employer anti-union actions before threats or other coercion escalate into unlawful discharges or other adverse actions.

The NLRB General Counsel plans to seek 10(j) relief in organizing campaigns where the facts demonstrate that employer threats or other coercion may lead to irreparable harm to employees’ Section 7 rights. The memo directs NLRB field offices to quickly investigate complaints of threats or other coercion during an organizing drive and promptly submit those cases for consideration of injunctive relief.
