#1119: What’s in a Name?

Like the strip suggests, in a huge number of industries, the use of a "supervisor" title (or classification) has been used as a way to disqualify workers from union membership and some protections guaranteed to workers/employees under the National Labor Relations Act.

For some further reading, check out “Supervisor in name only” by the Economic Policy Institute — but note that the Bush-era NLRB decision it discusses was subsequential appealed and tossed out. Still, whether or not certain workers are legitimately classified as supervisors or not comes up a lot when employees lean on NLRA protections for concerted activity or joining/organizing unions.
