The Right to Have Our Say Before You Form a Union

How to Operate as an Employer of Choice for Employees, Not One of Opportunity for Unions
  • Jonathan T. Hyman

Abstract

No company is a perfect employer. We know that employees gripe to each other. We know that they complain about how much they make, how many hours they work, how much of a jerk that supervisor is, and how stupid the work rules are. And, from time to time, they even mention that most dreaded of five letter words—union.
