Your Rights When Organizing.

The law gives us the freedom to unite and build a better future at MDRC. It is unlawful for an employer or supervisor to interfere with, restrain, or coerce employees seeking to organize or join a union. 

Employers cannot:

  • Tell employees that the company will fire or punish them if they engage in a union activity.

  • Lay off or discharge any employee for union activity.

  • Promise or withhold wage increases or special concessions in order to keep employees from forming a union.

  • Prohibit employee union activists from asking others to join the union during non-work hours.

  • Ask employees about confidential union matters, meetings, etc.

  • Ask employees about the union or union representatives.

  • Ask employees how they intend to vote.

  • Ask employees whether or not they belong to a union or have signed up for a union

  • create/change work assignments that intend to punish or get rid of an employee because of her/his union activity.

  • Threaten employees or coerce them in an attempt to influence their vote.

  • Tell employees that existing benefits will be discontinued if the company is unionized.

  • Say unionization will force the employer to lay off employees.

  • Say unionization will take away vacations or other benefits and privileges presently in effect.

  • Promise employees promotions raise, or other benefits if they vote no.

  • Threaten to close an office location if employees form a union.
