I am reading this thread with interest. It seems that agencies hold all the cards in this situation. If the contractor refuses to sign the agreement, they could lose their assignment or be subject to harassment; if they do sign, they're beholden to this one employer. Are "right to work laws" the only legal safeguards in place against this? Talking to a labor attorney prior to signing something like that would be a good idea...

Deciding not to sign, regardless of whether you sought counsel, would be a tough call....has anyone ever _refused_ to sign?
