I particularly like these two bullets:

• Instill confidence that the company will do the right thing
• Do the right thing

America has a long and emblematic history, an ethos really, of corporations doing the right thing. It almost is a reflex for CEOs. They instinctively ask "but are we doing the right thing?" I'm sure the business men and women who first enjoyed this PowerPoint were a sea of heads nodding in understanding and approval.

I expected that to be a lot worse.

I fail to see what was so bad about that, newsflash businesses don't like unions, well clutch my pearls.

It's not like they were suggesting the Henry Ford anti union process

Corporations hate unions. News at 11.

Oh noes! How will the poor CEOS afford their second yacht now?

The slideshow actually didn't seem too bad. If companies make sincere efforts to take its advice, I think they would see a drop in unionization interest.

The highlighted bit about the union target employees was pretty bad, and I think generally a bad strategy to caricature your opponents as losers/jerks/etc. But the rest seemed like solid advice. Likely to be ignored or gamed by problem employers I suppose but I didn't pick up on any "Wink wink" subtext in the bits about doing the right thing, making employees feel secure & fairly treated, avoiding illegal interference in unionization.

I agree! Business has been killing people for AGES.  What's up with your anger now?  Find me my fainting couch!

Ok I read them all and other than the one slide pointed out it is not as bad as I thought. Not great, but these people have a large financial interest in a union not forming so it is information I expect. Kinda what you expect from a management level presentation/training. And these is a lot of preventive stuff, like don't have crappy managers so people want to work there.

They list the "wrong things" that make employees want to unionize, but not a word abut how "doing the right thing" might somehow be related to that.

Occupational and workplace safety concerns
Financial rewards for longevity/loyalty
Acknowledgement of seniority


What makes these unique to blue collar jobs?

Unions wouldn't be needed if employers weren't so dickish and abusive. Unions are about the only counterweight and advocate left for the worker, and they themselves are hanging by their fingernails because corporations have been pushing away at them for so long thru lobbying.

AOC said that every new Congress member attends an "orientation" at Harvard that is an anti-labor, anti-union indoctrination.  It's propaganda.
The bit about "who unions target" is hilarious.  This law firm must represent shiatty companies that steal wages from workers on the reg.
The simple fact is that all employees greatly benefit from unions except the C-suite.  Even white collar non-union members since benefits to blue collar employees can't exceed that of middle management.
How about this?  Minimum 4 weeks paid vacation per year for every American regardless of employment status or length of employment.  Make election day a national holiday.  Enact portable pensions which are protected legally from lawsuits and bankruptcy, mandatory 7% contribution by workers and 7% by employers.  Single payer health care and end medical bankruptcy.  Include dental.  Keep social security and 401ks but only for those making less than $500k per year total income.  Change small claims courts to a $100 arbitration hearing for cases less than $50,000 where the arbitration clerk has the power to seize assets or place liens on property immediately following a brief hearing (this works great for businesses and contractors BTW, it's a thing in CH).  This will end petty theft from supervisors, especially in the restaurant industry where taking of tips and demanding work off the clock is normal in Best America.
