Social Media Policy

UA Local 400 Union
Social Media Policy

Social media sites are powerful tools for building relationships, marketing our union, and discussing the important issues facing our members and industry.  However, when used improperly, social media can give rise to serious legal and other problems.  This UA Local 400 Policy was developed to help minimize such problems and promote safe spaces in social media for free and open discussions.

Members shall refrain from posting anything on UA Local 400 social media that:

  • Is untruthful, defamatory, libelous or invades a person’s privacy
  • Is discriminatory, hateful, harassing or threatening
  • Is obscene, profane or vulgar
  • Violates copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights
  • Attacks our union as an institution or discloses proprietary, confidential or other information that interferes with the performance of its legal or contractual obligations
  • Includes union election campaign content, such as advocacy for or against a candidate for union office
  • Includes spam, flaming or flooding
  • Includes advertising or solicitation

UA Local 400 reserves the right to delete or block any content and/or user on UA Local 400 social media when the content and/or user violate these rules.  Members should also be aware that communications through a UA Local 400 social media site or page shall in no way constitute a legal or official notice, comment or request to UA Local 400.

The ground rules in the Policy represent only a minimum of standards of conduct on social media.  Words and deeds can reflect on UA Local 400 and its members, regardless of intent.  We are all stewards of a proud tradition and it is up to each of us to represent it well, on the jobsite, in the community and on social media.
