1402.02000 – Union’s Waiver of Employee or Organizational Rights

To determine whether a union has waived its right to engage in a sympathy strike, the Board uses the standard in Children’s Hospital Medical Center v. Nurses Ass’n. Under that standard, a general no-strike clause will not be read to apply to sympathy strikes unless there is extrinsic evidence demonstrating a mutual intent to include such strikes.
