Employers commonly use scare tactics to try to stop workers from exercising their legal rights to form a union. Hiring anti-union consultants, holding special mandatory meetings, sending letters to your home, may all be part of your employer’s campaign to stop you from having more power on the job. The key is to stay focused on the reasons why you wanted a union in the first place and not let scare tactics keep you from victory.
“You’ll have to pay dues and fees you can’t afford.”
“The union will make you go on strike and you’ll lose everything.”
“You’ll have to follow strict union rules.”
“You can lose the wages and benefits you have now and start from scratch.”
“Union supporters will lose their jobs.”
“We don’t have to agree to a union contract.”
“Just give us another chance.”
