UNION BUSTING TACTICS
Union busting is a field populated by bullies and built on deceit. A campaign against a union is an assault on individuals and a war on truth. As such, it is a war without honor. The only way to bust a union is to lie, distort, manipulate, threaten, and always, always attack.
Martin Jay Levitt, 1993, Confessions of a Union Buster
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.
