This article focuses on a case regarding the decision of Tex Manufacturing Co. to station its supervisors at the handbilling location of its labor union. In addition, the U.S. National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) found, the employer's action interfered with the distribution of union literature. In so finding, the NLRB noted the absence of any plausible reason for positioning supervisors at the gate. In such circumstances, the NLRB stated, it could only be inferred that the employer's action was for the purpose of discouraging and deterring employees from engaging in handbilling activities.
