Protected Concerted Activity in Union and Non-Union Workplaces

The NLRA, under section 7 and section 8(a)(1), protects the rights of employees to engage in “protected concerted activity,” which the NLRB generally defines as two or more employees taking action relating to terms and conditions of employment for their mutual aid or protection.

  • This right applies to union and non-union employees. The NLRB often enforces these rights in non-unionized settings.
