Since labor law reform is on the table...

... some GOP members want curbs on the union practice of "salting". Ohio Employer's Law:

"Salting" is a common organizing tactic used by labor unions. It refers to union organizers applying for jobs with non-union employers. The organizers then attempt to organize the employer's workforce from the inside. In addition to organizing, the salts also try to inflict economic harm on the targeted employer by triggering unfair labor practice charges and resulting back pay liability. Salting is one [of] the more underhanded methods of organizing used by labor unions. ...

The proposed Truth in Employment Act of 2009 would include findings deeming salting an "aggressive form of harassment" and would establish a right on employers' part to turn down job applicants with motivations of this sort.
