The union-busting industry operates in a world of loopholes. Did you know that union-busters don't have to report their activities unless they speak directly to organizing workers? For example, union-busters never have to report if they were wrote speeches for management, designed flyers, or facilitated the distribution of intimidating text messages. If union-busters do work with employees directly, they have to report it in an LM-20.
You'd expect the union-busting industry to be able to meet such a low bar, but you'd be wrong. In fact, union-busters consistently break the law by intimidating... er... persuading workers directly and failing to report that activity.
The Department of Labor has launched a new tip line for people to report unreported anti-union persuasion from union-busters.
Here's the info:
