Target and Unfair-Labor-Practice

The National Labor Relations Board has added to charges that retail giant Target violated the law in the run-up to a failed unionization vote at its Valley Stream, L.I., location last year, alleging that supervisors interrogated workers about their support for the campaign and threatened to close the store if the union came in and organized a strike.
Other new unfair-labor-practice charges pertain to an employee handbook that was revised in 2009 and contains policies prohibiting employees from sharing confidential company information with each other. The confidentiality policy, which comes with penalty of termination or prosecution, could prevent workers from discussing their salaries with each other, making organizing more challenging.
