Likely the Yankees deal the protesters just like autograph hounds, just little people in their way.

Picket the Sheraton on a Friday night, at rush hour, the first night of Red Sox/Yankees playoff series at Fenway, when Dalton and Belvidere both have lane closures due to construction, and scumbag Sheraton management is blocking thru passage to the Prudential complex. I'm 100% pro-union but public relations matters. Dumb.

They have not been brought in to do the work usually done by UNITE HERE members who are on strike.

They did cross a picket line, which is uncool. But unlike the guys from that Texas company who have come in to do Eversource work during the lockout, the Yankees are not scabs.

See, for example, the write up here.

Any non-management employee can choose to not "cross a picket line" anywhere, according to NLRB-enforced law.

Refusing to cross a lawfully established picket line is protected by the National Labor Relations Act. You have the legal right not to cross a picket line in solidarity with your own union, out of sympathy for workers from another union, or just to avoid confrontation. By refusing to cross a picket line while on duty you are essentially engaging in a strike in sympathy with the picketing workers.
Refusing to cross a picket line is a legally protected act.

NLRB uses the phrase cross the picket line to mean anyone who isn't respecting the strike, scab or no. If there's a picket line outside the grocery store and you boss sends you [a non-management employee] there to buy snacks for the office, your boss can't discipline you for not buying snacks there, according to the NLRB.
