Addicting Info – President Obama Gives Workers An Easier Way To Unionize

Addicting Info – President Obama Gives Workers An Easier Way To Unionize

The new reform will include limits to some of the litigation that can precede a union election, which will make it harder for groups or individuals to stall or drag out the process. It will also allow unions to file election petitions via email, and they will now require employers to provide the unions with the email addresses and phone numbers of workers who are eligible to vote. Not surprisingly, big business employers who are vehemently opposed to the reform, instead favor the older, slower election process, as it gives them more time to coerce and intimidate union employees into not unionizing.
