Union Organizing Fundamentals

  1. Do some research on your employer. Any history of union campaigns? Any history of employees filing complaints with OSHA, MCAD, the NLRB (in the private sector) or the DLR (in the public sector).[2] Also do some research on sources of leverage that would give you and your co-workers increased influence with your employer: staff relationships with customers or clients, with elected officials, liberal and pro-union members of the board of directors.
