The Insider Union filed three new unfair labor practice charges against Insider on Saturday as about 250 union members entered their second week of a strike, reports Alex Bitter of the union.
Bitter writes, “Two of the ULPs claim that Insider violated union members’ rights to participate in union activities. One case involves a manager sending a message to two union employees via Twitter discouraging them from participating in Insider Union activities. The other claims that other managers blocked union members on social-media platforms, including Twitter and LinkedIn, after seeing their posts about the strike.
“Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act guarantees workers the right to join a union, collectively bargain, and take other actions that support those goals.
“The third ULP claims that Insider’s management refused to bargain by failing to provide aggregate information, such as how often members went to the doctor, about union members’ healthcare usage. The ULP is separate from another filed by Insider Union earlier this year about management’s illegal switch from UnitedHealthcare to Cigna.”
