-Please plan to attend the Salt Act Event with Rep Burgess Owens.

Location: 1020 N. Redwood Road, Suite 1000A, North Salt Lake, UT 84054

Date and time: Mon, May 13, 2024 1:00 PM

Burgess Owens  has proposed legislation to register Union Salts. One of the reasons IEC was initially formed was to give contractors a forum to counter the efforts of union organization.  One of the oldest unionization tools is that of “salting” your company.  I believe the legislation Burgess Owens is proposing is a valid effort to help bring to light this deceptive practice.  One of his points that he makes is why would any organization want to start a relationship based on deception.  This proposed legislation would provide a mechanism so that the “salt” must register with the DOL as such.  While this is likely an informational bill to raise awareness of this practice, our core values of engagement and advocacy would both be well served for us to have a good showing of IEC contractors at the meeting. It is also a great courtesy to RSVP your intent to attend.
