Temp employees lose many unionizing rights

If you hire lots of temporary employees and fear that they'll join with the regular staff to organize a union, we have good news: A new National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruling makes that much more difficult. NLRB's ruling, which overturned a Clinton-era decision, doesn't completely ban temps from joining the union. But it says that both the temp agency and your organization must agree to the bargaining arrangement, which isn't likely.
