401.01000 – In General; Prima Facie Case.
Employer’s initiation of arrest of employee/union officer for refusal to leave drivers’ assembly room where officer was discussing union matters with individual employees interfered with union’s right to access employees and employees’ right to discuss union matters with union representatives. The officer’s discussion of union matters with employees was a protected activity. The employer failed to establish a legitimate business reason for denying the officer access to the assembly room because the evidence showed the officer was not disrupting the employer’s operations in any way.
