    Union busting in American

    From American Progress:

    A new report released by American Rights at Work shows that a majority of employers are aggressively using both legal and illegal anti-union tactics before union representation votes to undermine union support. Thirty percent of employers fire pro-union workers, 82 percent hire high-priced "unionbusting" consultants, and 91 percent of employers force employees to have one-on-one anti-union meetings with their supervisors. The report concludes that "union membership in the United States is not declining because workers no longer want, need, or attempt to form unions [but] is related to employers’ systematic use of legal and illegal tactics to stymie union organizing." American Progress is also engaged in an international campaign to promote human rights and a decent work agenda through Global Progress.
