To increase your chances of defeating a union drive while avoiding a National Labor Relations Act claim, heed these tips:

  1. Do describe the good features of working for your company, such as existing benefits, job security and steady work.
  2. Do explain union disadvantages, such as strikes, picket lines and union dues.
  3. Don't promise wage increases or other rewards for voting against the union.
  4. Don't threaten to take anything away for voting the union in.
  5. Don't prohibit union logos on clothing, except for established safety reasons.
  6. Don't prevent oral solicitation during breaks or before and after work.
