Instead, the manager harassed and intimidated workers individually, threatening to fire them for being union members. Once support for the union was weakened, all of the union leaders were dismissed. More than 50 members resigned in protest. The remaining workers were forced (one by one) to sign lett

That's how it works when you deal with the ALL POWERFUL.

They don't care at what cost to stop unions. Unions would eat into their profits.

I have seen and heard of stores they have just closed rather than let them be unionized. Think about all the McDonald's and you can see that one store more or less closing will not hurt their cash flow a bit.

You are fighting a losing battle, good luck.
