May an employer require employees to attend a meeting where it presents its view on unionization?

Author: Jed L. Marcus, Bressler, Amery & Ross, P.C.

An employer is permitted to call meetings during the workday to offer its opinions on unions and unionization so long as there are no threats or promises. An employer violates the National Labor Relations Act if it punishes an employee who refuses to attend the meeting because of his or her own views on the union.
