It's not clear what terms you need help with, so I'll just go through the numbered things...

  1. Employers can't stop employees from trying to form unions.
  2. They can't punish employees if the employees "tell on" the company for violating parts of the act.
  3. They can't try to control the union by giving it money.
  4. This one sounds more like something the union can't do -- it can't force the employer to boycott any other business.  What this means is if the union at Company A doesn't like Company B, it can't tell Company A to stop doing business with Company B.

So is that what you wanted?
