Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

No, There’s No Harassment Here …

Another great catch by Phillip Wilson at Laboring Away At The Institute:

I ran across an unfair labor practice charge that I thought was interesting. You can download a copy of the charge here but the basic point is that (surprise, surprise) the union used a variety of heavy-handed tactics including, harassment, intimidation, threats, and bribes to get authorization cards signed. I guess that’s a lot easier than just delivering results for your members and standing on your record… Free Choice indeed.

The union in question is SEIU 1199P, from Pennsylvania. See the ULP here.
