Case 10.1: Unlawful Interrogation

  1. Explain why you agree or disagree with the decision of the court.


Step-By-Step Solution

1 Agree: There is no doubt that the goal of the inquiry was to find a way to keep the union from being brought into this workplace. The supervisor obviously knew that the employee being questioned was an employee who would be eligible to be a part of a bargaining unit, or else why would he think she had information on the union? And, suggesting that the employer would make changes to keep the union out is a promise that violates the Act.

Disagree: The employee was not being “interrogated” in any coercive manner. If the supervisor statement was true, and the union did not contradict it, then this supervisor had talked to this employee in the past and there would be no reason to think she would be intimidated. Furthermore, suggesting that an employee who may be causing problems in the workforce could be removed is not the type of promise or threat contemplated by the Act. Such a threat or promise should be something that will directly affect the employees.
