  •  Re the NLRB charge (0+ / 0-)

    Walmart filed under a section of the NLRA that says it is a ULP to picket for longer then 30 days where the union has a recognitional objective.  If the union is simply saying "Walmart sucks because it pays crappy wages and benefits and thus tears down the whole community" the section under which Walmart filed cannot apply.  Also, such a charge can only be filed against a union or its agents.  If non-union employees are picketing the company would have a very time bringing those workers within the portion of the NLRA Walmart filed under.  Finally, under the Norris-LaGuardia Act, if the NLRA does NOT apply, no federal court may issue an injunction to shut down peaceful labor protests.  (State courts are a different matter, but many states have "little" Norris-LaGuardia Acts).
