Union Free Radio, Ep. 14: When Unions Lie, Employee Free Choice Dies

0

Unions are legally allowed to lie to workers when unionizing them. Why?

According to National Labor Relations Board doctrine, “Employees are generally able to understand that a union cannot obtain benefits automatically by winning an election but must seek to achieve them through collective bargaining.”

With less than seven percent of U.S. workers in the private-sector unionized today, the NLRB’s age-old doctrine of allowing unions to lie to workers should be re-examined.



In this 17-minute episode of Union Free Radio, host Peter List explores the legal background of unions deceiving workers, as well as ponders the question: Instead of Congress and the NLRB looking at ways to make it easier for unions to unionize workers through deception, shouldn’t Congress should really be considering a bill to require unions to be more honest with workers?

There is a Truth in Lending Act; there are all kinds of consumer protection laws…

Why not a Truth in Union Organizing Act?
