Click the button to learn more about the union's ULP Charges


Employees, employers, and labor organizations file thousands of allegations each year called Unfair Labor Practice charges against unions and union officials. An Unfair Labor Practice (ULP) occurs when a union or an employer violates Section 8 of the National Labor Relations Act. Represented employees commonly file ULPs against their union because the union failed to fairly represent them including intimidation, coercion, violence, and many other labor law violations.


The Union's Track Record

UAW NLRB Petitions and Election Record

Click the button to learn more about the union's track record


Labor unions file thousands of petitions requesting elections in their attempt to represent new dues paying members. Once the petition is filed and accepted by the federal government, many of these petitions are withdrawn where the union "backs out" and quits before election can be held.  Equally as important to know, most unions only win the right to represent employees on a fraction of the petitions they've filed. No wonder so many employee groups file petitions to "kick out" and decerty the union regaining their union-free competitive advantage.

Anyone who feels they may be subject to a work stoppage, such as a union strike or lock out, should do so cautiously and under competent advice. Unions know their best arsenal against the employer is simply the threat of a strike. Are you prepared to take care of your family if called upon to walk out on strike?
