  • National Relation Labor Act? Vermont

    I was at work today and asked my co-worker how much she made. She said I can't tell you because our manager told me not to tell anyone how much I make. I can't make her tell me but I thought it was illegal for a boss to forbid you to tell another co-worker your wage (if you wanted to).

    Please respond. This really bothers me.

    What are protected concerted activities?
    The National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) protects employees’ rights to engage in protected concerted activities with or without a union, which are usually group activities (2 or more employees acting together) attempting to improve working conditions, such as wages and benefits. Some examples of such activities include: ...

    c) 2 or more employees discussing pay or other work-related issues with each other.

      And another possibility is that she doesn't want to tell you and is using the manager as an excuse. It's none of your business unless she WANTS to tell you. And she's the only one who knows if she does or not.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

        I was at work today and asked my co-worker how much she made. plong, that's a very rude question to ask someone. As cbg said, perhaps she used the manager as an excuse because it's none of your business and she doesn't want to discuss her compensation with you.
