401.04000 – Access – Union Right

We construe the MMBA to afford employee and non-employee representatives of employee organizations alike, access to areas in which employees work. This access is subject to reasonable employer regulation upon the employer’s showing that a particular regulation is both necessary to the efficient operation of the employer’s business and/or the safety of its employees and others, and narrowly drawn to avoid overbroad, unnecessary interference with the exercise of statutory rights.
