PICKET LINE: This is the traditional method of demonstrating that a labor union is on strike against an employer, whereby union members carry picket signs and walk in a line in front of the employers plant, factory, or place of business. The pickets carried by the striking workers contain messages documenting their striking status and some of their grievances with the employer. The act of walking in an orderly fashion means that they are not engaged in other activities that might be illegal. Crossing the "picket line" is symbolic of attempts to break a streak and to disagree with the goals of the striking workers.

NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD: A government body overseeing relations between unions and management -- the workers and their employers. It was established by the National Labor Relations Act in 1935, but was modified by the Labor-Management Relations Act in 1947. The National Labor Relations Board is the place to go should either unions or management suspect the other side is engaging in unfair labor practices.
