In March 2011, the catering company Sodexo Inc. sued the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) for alleged “intimidation, threats, and other extortionate tactics” as part of an organizing campaign. During the suit’s discovery process, SEIU was forced to turn over its Contract Campaign Manual, which details the union’s strategies for attacking an employer’s reputation, its relationship with its customers and vendors, and even its managers personally. The Competitive Enterprise Institute obtained a copy of the manual from the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) system. The following quotes are directly from the SEIU manual.

In the section “Pressuring the Employer,” the manual makes the distinction between being right and having “might.” To gain might, the SEIU manual suggests:

Outside pressure can involve jeopardizing relationships between the employer and lenders, investors, stockholders, customers, clients, patients, tenants, politicians, or others on whom the employer depends for funds.
Legal and regulatory pressure can threaten the employer with costly action by government agencies or the courts.
Community action and use of the news media can damage an employer’s public image and ties with community leaders and organizations.

Assume that pressure tactics will be necessary and start planning for them in advance.
