This article reviews the law relating to the ability of employers to refuse to hire job applicants who are also outside union organizers (commonly known as ‘salts’). Typically, unions employ a strategy of ‘salting’ the workforces of companies they have targeted for unionization drives, and the author leaves it to the readers to decide whether this is a fair organizing tactic or a nefarious strategy. The author suggests that developing case law will provide guidance to employers regarding viable organizing efforts by unions.
