801.05000 – Union Threats; Violence
Under the reasonable person standard, a phone call from the union president to management inquiring as to charging party’s whereabouts, which was precipitated by complaints that charging party was conducting union business on work time, did not constitute adverse action where management resolved issue with charging party without incident; charging party’s subjective reaction of feeling fearful in combination with the lack of any evidence of adverse impact on employment led to the conclusion that the call did not constitute adverse action under a union retaliation analysis.
