    Neutrality agreements are currently a powerful tactic for union organizing.

    Many employers routinely break the law and fire pro union workers during the current NLRB election  scheme.  Neutrality agreements avoid those toxic situations.

    Nonetheless, unions have been winning a large majority of NLRB elections but truculent employers never sign contracts in many instances.

    Neutrality agreements often extend to requiring more polite contract bargaining, too.

    I've participated in obtaining neutrality agreements (via corporate campaigns) from even bitterly anti union employers, that amazingly resulted in successful union contracts for many workers.

    I can't believe this court case called "bribery" what employers routinely give to unions during NLRB-supervised elections.

    I may be ready to sign an "impeach" petition if SCOTUS tosses neutrality agreements.
