1000.02163 – Work Rules
University's name tag policy concerns terms and conditions of employment within meaning of HEERA section 3562(r) as the name tag policy involves the employment relationship, is of sufficient concern as to give rise to conflicts that collective negotiations may appropriately resolve, and obligation to negotiate would not unduly abridge University's freedom to exercise managerial prerogatives necessary to its mission. Name tag policies fall into the category of policies that in the private sector would be called "plant rules." The NLRB has long held plant rules to be within the scope of representation.
