The following is intended as a limited survey of recent decisions of the National Labor Relations Board and various state and federal courts on the subject of nonemployee access to employer property in certain labor relations contexts. To the extent that there is a thematic structure to the writing, it is that implied by interstices between the rationales of the Supreme Court decisions in Hudgen v. NLRB and Sears, Roebuck & Co. v. San Diego County District Council of Carpenters (Sears I). A brief description of those interstices is therefore an appropriate starting point.
