An organized refusal on the part of employees and their union to deal with an employer, with the objective of winning concessions. Primary boycotts usually take the form of putting pressure on consumers not to buy the goods of an employer who is directly involved in a dispute. In the dress industry, for example, the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union frequently boycotts the sale of non-union made dresses. Secondary boycotts are those in which pressure is exerted on employers who are not directly involved in a dispute, e.g.. workers of Company A refuse to buy or handle goods of Company B, which is engaged in a labour dispute
