What is an Unfair Labour Practice? ULP

Unfair Labour Practice (ULP) definition.

Unfair labour practices are actions that break relevant employment laws regarding misbehave conducted by an employer or a union.

Not all ‘unfair’ actions in the workplace can be considered unfair labour practices. ULPs are very particular transgressions and there is an up-to-date list (from the NLRB, National Labor Relations Board) that can be solicited.

Examples of Unfair Labour Practices (ULPs)

  • Employers must not decline to negotiate with a union that is permitted to speak on behalf of its employees. Must not control or obstruct the creation or administration of a labour organisation. Must not discriminate against employees because they have engaged in the action of a union.
  • Unions must not originate an employer to discriminate against an employee, must not strike either picket a health-care establishment without giving the required notice. They must not require imprudent dues or constrain/pressure employees when making the choice of which their union representative will be or on the use of their rights.
