Considering that the average person won't know anything about this, and even if they did know... they probably don't care.
It seems odd and stupid to me. But hey, its a cheap way to try and block a few potential websites if that is their goal. I imagine the idea is something incompetent management thought up.
Regardless... you can register whatever you want, and they have very reasonable grounds for trying to grab domains with their name. I really don't see the point for useful discussion... its a pretty stupid idea, but I don't see an underlying conspiracy to crush the unions and the workforce.
