Follow A ‘Stream’ Of Rats At Today’s NLRB Hearings.
The irony or humor of this is that the NLRB ruled in May of this year that labor unions should have the right to display 16-foot, rat-shaped balloons outside businesses with which they disagree.
The majority of the board decided that displaying a towering rat outside a hospital using non-union contractors, for example, does not have the same “coercive” effect as a traditional picket line. If displaying the rat balloon outside a business had been deemed “picketing,” unions wouldn’t be allowed to attack their target businesses’ credibility in such a way without the negative consequences. Funny.
