The National Labor Relations Board has held that the union commits an unfair labor practice under Section 8(b)(1)(A) of National Labor Relations Act when it fines a member who is attempting to institute decertification proceedings against it, because the fine is not only a punitive measure which inhibits access by the member to the processes of the Board but is also an ineffective deterrent to decertification.
