Boycotts

Unions also employ boycotts when conflicts occur. A primary or simple boycott occurs when a union refuses to deal with, patronize, or permit union members to work for the employer with whom the union has a conflict. A secondary boycott occurs when a union refuses to deal with, or pickets, customers or suppliers of the employer. Many secondary boycotts are banned, and others are lawful only when limited conditions are met.
