New video produced by the IBEW reveals the truth about what really happens when workers try to exercise their rights in the workplace.
A May 2009 study of employer opposition to union organizing done by Cornell University researcher Dr. Kate Bronfenbrenner finds:
•More than 70 percent of employers hold one-on-one closed door meetings with employees during a unionization drive. 54 percent of employers threaten workers in such meetings, while 57 percent threaten to close the worksite •75 percent of employers bring in outside anti-union consultants •47 percent of employers threaten to cut wages and benefits •34 percent of employers fire workers during a union campaign
Its to time to fix our broken labor laws so all workers have the right to choose their future without fear of retribution or intimidation.
