Recent NLRB decisions have permitted union members to resign from a union and return to work without being subject to union discipline, and have also forbidden the honoring of another union's picket line where the union member's collective bargaining agreement contains a broad no-strike clause. The author examines prior caselaw and underlying principles in this area and concludes that these recent NLRB decision, when viewed as a whole, signify a departure from the Board's reasoning in prior cases, and could effectively eliminate the efficacy of union strikes as a means of protesting unfair labor practices.
