The article discusses the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruling which allows an employer to prohibit a union or employees seeking to solicit or organize for a union from using company e-mail systems to communicate. The NLRB has held that a company may have a policy which prohibits workplace solicitations but that such policies should be consistently enforced. The article suggests employers review and re-issue policies, train employees and enforce e-mail policies in order to restrict the use of company e-mail.
