The National Labor Relations Board found fast a food Burger King franchisee committed various form of union-busting. Specifically, threatening a worker who discussed the protests at work, gave a disciplinary warning to a union sympathizer, and enforcing a bogus "no solicitation" rule on its own employees. The actions by the franchisee were intended to discourage any talk or action to unionize its fast food workers.

Workers have the right to organize and determine if they want to unionize and companies and franchisee owners need to respect those right.

According to the decision, EYM King, which runs 22 Burger King restaurants in and around Detroit, broke labor law by threatening a worker for discussing protests while on the job; giving a disciplinary warning to a union sympathizer; and enforcing a "no solicitation" rule on its own employees.

Most absurdly, the company was found to have illegally sent a pro-union worker home one day for allegedly failing to "put pickles on her sandwiches in perfect squares as she was supposed to do," according to the decision by Arthur J. Amchan, an administrative law judge.

It's against the law to punish a worker for discussing wages, working conditions or unionization with other colleagues -- such talk is considered "protected concerted activity" under the law. Yet the company insisted to the judge that it was "plainly entitled" to forbid workers from discussing such matters during work.

"This assertion is simply incorrect," the judge wrote.
