This chapter is about employers’ increased resistance to union organizing. It shows how mainstream employers first tried to weaken labor law by uniting in the Labor Law Reform Group. They then stepped up their efforts to bend and break the law, developing and honing a new set of techniques to fight union organizing, promulgated through the vastly expanded “union avoidance” industry. It includes a section on the labor law reform effort of 1978-79.

Keywords:   union busters, unfair labor practices, Labor Law Reform Group, Labor Law Reform Act, business roundtable, anti-union consultants
