Author: James S. Urban, Jones Day


  • For most private sector employers in Pennsylvania, liability for unfair labor practices is governed almost exclusively by the National Labor Relations Act. See Unfair Labor Practices.
  • Private Pennsylvania employers are able to obtain assistance from the courts in ending mass picketing, violent picketing, or picketing that blocks ingress and egress at a facility. See Mass Union Picketing and Other Unlawful Activity.
