Brylane workers get support from labor board
September 10, 2002,
Indianapolis — Brylane employees scored a victory of sorts when Region 25 of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) announced that there will not be a secret ballot election for union representation at the company's distribution facilities here.
The company had requested an election but the NLRB's decision reaffirms workers' rights to choose union representation without employer interference. The National Labor Relations Act allows workers to pursue an election or card-check process to determine union representation.
