A union's picketing for area standards, requesting a non-union employer to provide the prevailing employment benefits offered by unionized operations in the locale, has been held by the National Labor Relations Board to be non-recognitional and hence beyond the purview of section 8(b)(7) of the LMRDA. In addition to evaluating the Board's distinction between bona fide area standards picketing and disguised recognitional picketing, this comment seeks to anticipate difficulties which the Board will encounter in attempting to specify the components of the economic package to which non-union employers may be requested to conform.
