union suppression

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Is a management strategy to avoid unionization that involves the victimization of union activists and supporters and threats to close or relocate the company if unionization occurs. In many countries, action of this kind is unlawful, though research indicates that it is a common response amongst managers faced with the prospect of unionization for the first time.
