  •  yes, there is. (0+ / 0-)

    It's called the National Labor Relations Act.  Under that Act, it is illegal to do anything, anywhere, for the purpose of avoiding a union or interfering with a worker's right to join or form a union.  Period.

    NLRB's job is to enforce that law.

      Works for me.  

      Glad that is in place and it's being enforced.

      Thanks.

      •  the problem with "enforcement" is (0+ / 0-)

        that the only penalties provided in the law are reinstatement and/or back pay.  In any violation of the law that does not involve back pay, the only legal penalty is, literally, to be required to post a notice in your workplace saying that you won't do it again.  Seriously.  No joke.

        That is why the law is routinely broken with impunity.
