Union Salting: Reactions and Rulings since Town and Country
In a difficult organizing environment, unions have adopted growth strategies including organizing for recognition and bypassing the NLRB election process -- a top-down approach. Union salting has become a popular tool toward achieving that goal particularly among the building trades unions. I examine labor's thrust at the top-down approach toward organizing the workplace using the "salting" strategy, employer reactions to salting, and the pattern of rulings coming from the National Labor Relations Board since the seminal Supreme Court case on salting, NLRB v. Town & Country Electric (1995).
