Union Busting

A derogatory term for the attempt to reduce the power of a labor union, or an organization designed to protect worker interests. Union busting generally is intended to allow employers to force employees to accept less favorable terms or working conditions. Union busting may involve espionage, hiring of scabs (or workers who agree not to abide by a union agreement), lockouts, or even violence. See also: Anti-unionism.
