Thomas Built Buses Worker Files Federal Charge Against Company for Turning Blind Eye to Union Harassment
Company management demands she join the union to get fair treatment
High Point, NC (October 28, 2013) – A local Thomas Built Buses worker has filed a federal charge against the company for turning a blind eye to harassment she has received for exercising her right to refrain and inform her coworkers of their right to refrain from union membership.
With free legal assistance from National Right to Work Foundation staff attorneys, Tracy McLaughlin filed the unfair labor practice charge yesterday with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
United Auto Worker (UAW) Local 5287 union officials obtained monopoly bargaining powers over the workplace in 2006 after union and company officials cut a deal to force union "representation" on the workers.
In her charge, McLaughlin states that union officials have harassed her because she has exercised her right under North Carolina's popular Right to Work law to refrain from membership in the UAW Local 5287 union.
