U.S. Labor Law:
American workers have fought for and won rights on the job. Stand up and stand together. You have rights and our rights as Americans are protected.
U. S. Labor Law says it’s illegal for employers to engage in:
Surveillance of workers who attend Union meetings, or any undercover activity which would indicate that employees are being spied on;
Threatening or punishing workers with termination, layoff, cut hours, cut duties, or discipline for Union activity;
Granting or promising wage increases, benefit improvements, promotions, improvements in working conditions, or special concessions to keep the Union out;
Threatening to or actually closing the facility or slashing operations to punish Union activity;
Questioning employees about Union matters, Union meetings, Union interest, how they intend to vote or about other employees feelings towards a Union;
Threatening to move the facility or failing to grant a scheduled wag increase because of Union activity.
All of these acts violate Federal Labor Laws - and your rights as Americans! Stand up for your dignity, and respect on the job. Report all violations - your employer must respect your rights.
