2022 Union Awareness Update and Labor Relations Strategies - It’s Been a Hot Union Summer and It’s Going to Keep Getting Hotter!

The economy, tight labor market, unparalleled support for unions at the federal level, and new union tactics have created the most pro-union environment in decades. Data shows unions are taking advantage and winning with aggressive organizing of new members and at the bargaining table. In unprecedented moves, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is making it easier to target non-union employers and expanding the remedies it seeks. Even the right to a secret ballot election is under threat, as are rights to communicate with your employees. 

Our focused program by two front-line experts will: 

·         Highlight the trends and threats, including online and with social media

·         Assess and identify current workplace climate for unionization

·         Provide information about proactive, meaningful approaches and strategies 

Don’t get caught unprepared! Help ensure positive leadership, management, and employee relations.
