Decertification Coercion Prevention
What it does: The Employee Rights Act penalizes unions who coerce, discipline, or interfere with employees seeking to decertify a union.
Support: 60% of respondents were strongly/somewhat supportive.
Why: Data from the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) indicates that just one in four decertification attempts are successful. Only half are even put up for a vote.
Background: Unions often use intimidation and coercion to dissuade employees from signing decertification petitions. Just as there are rules barring employers from firing or disciplining employees who are attempting to organize a workplace, the same should apply to protect union members trying to decertify their union.
