    Default Union Busting: Legal Team Creates Unions To Raid Memberships, Benefiting Employers

    This is something I hadn't heard of. What will they think of next?

    Union busting is nothing new. For over a hundred years employers have fought against unionizing efforts and worked to break unions after they win an election.

    They use fear and intimidation to push people against forming a union. After a union is elected they hold up negotiations, even sending out false information to workers, in an effort to splinter union support.

    Like I said, this is nothing new. We have seen these tactics in action for decades. Now we are seeing a new type of union busting, where the employer encourages workers to form a new union to replace the current union. Yes, you read that right, the employer works with a “union” to raid the membership of an existing union to gain enough support to have the existing union de-certified, thereby loosing all of the gains made from previous contracts.

    This tactic is very sneaky and very hard to pull off, but it has worked in the past for one specific law firm, Seham Seham Meltz & Petersen (SSM&P). The conditions have to be just right to make this work. There must be a certain level of discontent within the exiting union and this usually happens as contract negotiations fail. The “company union” then organizes the discontent workers into forming a new union to replace the exiting union.
