New Federal Contracts Require Notice Of Union-Organizing Rights


As of June 21, 2010, employers entering into contracts with the federal government worth over $100,000, or subcontracts of covered prime federal contracts worth over $10,000, are required to conspicuously post a new notice prominently advising employees of their rights to organize and join unions under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). The NLRA is a 75-year-old law that protects employees who engage in union-related activity from adverse treatment by employers and regulates how employers and employees are permitted to interact in the context of union-related activity. Employers with any covered federal contractors or subcontractors that fail to post the new notice of employee union-related rights can face the termination or suspension of their federal contracts, debarment from future federal contracts, and have their names published on a public list of noncompliant companies.

The English-language version of the notice can be found by following the link below...
