what is this called and what can be done about it?

Is there a term for a certain practice: that of trying to get longtime, well-paid employees to either quit or get fired, through excessive enforcement of regulations or creating a generally hostile enviornment. (I know through a reliable source that this is a practice at my workplace, even though we are unionized). (those of you who know where I work, please do not mention it by name, thanks)
