Bill summary

House amendment #3 further amends the 4th edition.

Adds to GS 95-79, which declares certain documents illegal. Establishes that any provision that directly or indirectly conditions the terms of an agreement not to sue or settle litigation upon an agricultural producer's status as a union or nonunion employer, or entry into or refusal to enter into an agreement with a labor union or labor organization, is invalid and unenforceable as against public policy in restraint of trade or commerce in North Carolina. Further establishes that an agreement requiring an agricultural producer to transfer funds to a labor union or labor organization for the purpose of paying an employee's membership fee or dues is also invalid and unenforceable as against public policy in restraint of trade or commerce in NC. 

Applies to agreements and settlements entered into, renewed, or extended on or after the date the act becomes law.
