They may think the card is just to get additional information or might think their signature is something they can get back. It’s a vulnerable time, and employees are likely to be highly susceptible to union promises. It’s up to management to make sure that employees understand the truth.

Make sure employees understand the implications, power, and binding legal nature of authorization cards and how they are used by unions gain new members, and that they may say just about anything to get one signed.
