Union-busting is a practice that is undertaken by an employer or their agents to prevent employees from joining a labor union, or to disempower, subvert, or destroy unions that already exist.
When workers attempt to form or join a union management will hire a third party high priced union buster who are experts in union-busting tactics. Their whole goal is to defeat the workers from joining or forming a union. A typical union-buster will charge $3,000 per day. A typical campaign will cost between $50,000 to $100,000 for a small group and upwards of $500,000 or more for larger groups.
