    The Employee Rights Act Puts American Workers, Not Union Bosses, in the Driver’s Seat

    April 13, 2022 // The Employee Rights Act contains several other provisions to protect workers from union intimidation. The bill criminalizes union threats in the workplace and bans unions from using personal employee data for anything unrelated to campaigns, taking Big Labor’s most aggressive and unethical tactics off the table. The bill also prohibits union “salting,” a tactic where a union pays an individual to apply for a job within a company that has not yet been unionized. Instead of becoming a productive employee, the “salt” is there to organize a union and be Big Labor’s mole on the inside.

    Sen. Scott (R-SC) to Introduce Employee Rights Act, Modernizing Out-Dated Labor Law

    March 31, 2022 // If unions don’t want to become obsolete in a modern economy that prioritizes flexibility and individual choice, they should try actually earning workers’ trust — not just legislating themselves back into power. The ERA would let workers decide if unions and their self-serving agendas really have a place in today’s workforce.

    The Employee Rights Act Puts Workers Ahead of Unions

    March 25, 2022 // For most Americans, labor laws — like labor unions — are an afterthought. Just 6 percent of private sector workers are union members.
