This is a bad idea that will only make things worst!

For anyone that does not know, going union at a company/factory is basically a two step process.

Step 1 is to canvas signatures from workers in support of a union. This is a very public activity. If higher ranking employees are in support of a union, there can be a lot of pressure on the lower level rank and file to sign the petition. When the signature collection period has ended and enough signatures have been collected, Step 2 happens.

Step 2 is a secret vote on whether to unionize or not. This is purposely done like any other election so that each person can vote their own mind without undo influence or pressure. It just so happens that in a lot of cases, step 1 will get a resounding level of support (big shock there) but will fail during the vote, when employees can perform that activity in secret and without fear of retribution.

Your wonderful Democrat controlled federal government, in a big payback move to the unions that supported them so well with money and bodies is looking to remove the requirement for a secret vote. Basically eliminating step 2. This would result in a union organizer being able to bully employees into signing the petition and as soon as enough signatures are collected, you are unionized. That would seem like something that happens in Cuba or North Korea or China, not here in America but that is exactly what they are trying to do. It should be stopped and stopped now!
