As background to this post, a Union Salt is a union member who applies for employment at a non-union business for the express purpose of unionizing that employer. While the practice has been more widely used in the construction industry, the practice has morphed in recent years to include other industries and “union moles”. Unlike union salts, who are typically existing union members, union moles may or may not be union members but are, nevertheless, usually being paid by a union to infiltrate and unionize a company from within.
