There’s a new bill in Congress that would allow companies to deny employment to suspected union organizers. What are the chances it gets passed?
The Truth in Employment Act of 2011 would amend the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and give employers the right to deny employment to job applicant they suspect of being union organizers (also know as “salts”).
Plus, in addition to allowing firms to deny employment to a suspected union organizer, the bill would also let them fire a salt after they discover his or her intentions.
It’s best not to get your hopes up to high when it comes to this bill.
Reason: The Truth in Employment Act of 2011 is very similar to a number of bills that have failed to get passed in Congress.
