MHI and a coalition of business organizations asked Congress to pass H.R. 7784, the Start Applying Labor Transparency (SALT) Act, which was introduced by Rep. Owens (UT-R) on March 21. The bill would require labor organizations to register “salts,” people who are paid by unions to get jobs at non-unionized workplaces and persuade other workers to organize with the Department of Labor (DOL). “Salts” can promote workplace discord, in some cases spying on coworkers to obtain information about the employer or workers to use during an organizing drive or labor dispute. The SALT Act would create parity with employer reporting obligations by requiring unions and salts to file reports with DOL. Publicizing this information would ensure workers and the public are fully aware when unions have paid a labor organizer to attempt to disrupt a workplace.
