1303.04000 – Blocking Charge
The alleged posting on employee bulletin boards of various management memoranda are not sufficient to establish a blocking charge. The facial neutrality of the memoranda coupled with their limited posting both in time and place are insufficient to prevent the employees from exercising free choice. Allegation that the filing and later withdrawal of a unit modification petition created a divisive election issue insufficient to justify blocking of election. Rather, allegation can be raised as an objection following election.
