Underhanded Tactics

Workers who have been subjected to a Big Labor Card Check campaign have experienced misleading and sham tactics to gain signatures. As David Freddoso notes:

In 2007, organizers for the Service Employees International Union in both Oregon and Minnesota were accused of telling workers that by signing cards they were merely requesting information.

But worse than that:

There are also stories of clear threats and intimidation by union organizers. Workers have been told that if they didn’t sign, they’d be fired when the union took over. They have been told their tires would be slashed. Ricardo Torres, an organizer for the United Steelworkers, quit his job after he was instructed to tell migrant workers that “they would be reported to federal immigration officials if they refused.”
