This Teamster Notice provides the first installment of our Nationwide NLRB Notice Awareness Program.

While unions like the Teamsters impact people across the U.S.A., often only few people ever hear about these unions’ shenanigans, brutish racist and sexist behavior, and other criminal mischief. Hopefully, this public service will help expose ‘union organizing,’ ‘union negotiations,’ and ‘union representation’ for what it actually is.

In this notice, a few years ago the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ordered Teamsters officials to post because of union actions during their hostile strike against Overnite employees, customers, and their families. Highlights from the four-page NLRB notice follow:

WE [TEAMSTERS] WILL NOT threaten to kill or inflict bodily harm, make throat slashing motions, make gun pointing motions, challenge or threaten to fight or assault employees, threaten to sexually assault non-striking employees or their family members, threaten to follow non-striking employees to their homes, use racial epithets or obscene gestures at non-striking employees or otherwise threaten unspecified reprisals on any non-striking employee of Overnite or any member of his or her family or any employee of a neutral employee doing business with Overnite, or on any security guard, supervisor or manager of Overnite or neutral employers doing business with Overnite in the presence of employees
