Syllabus

A labor union's offer to waive initiation fees for all employees who sign union authorization cards before a certification election under the National Labor Relations Act interferes with the employees' right to refrain from union activities guaranteed by § 7 of the Act, does not comport with the principle of "fair and free choice of bargaining representatives by employees" that is inherent in § 9(c)(1)(A), NLRB v. Tower Co.,329 U. S. 324, and is ground for denying enforcement of an order against the employer to bargain with the union after it wins the election. Pp. 414 U. S. 275-281.
