The full or partial organization of a workforce by a labor union presents an employer with unique challenges.
Because of this—and because the law limits how employers may respond to union organizing campaigns—employers that do not explore these issues until union organizing is under way are at a decided disadvantage.
In this seminar, our experienced labor attorneys detail the specific steps that employers should take to maximize their prospects for avoiding unionization, as well as the types of actions that the law does not permit. Specific topics include:
In addition to offering our Union Avoidance seminar at the Firm’s offices, we are available to present this training at clients’ workplaces. Because it is vital for all of an employer’s managers to be on board with its union-avoidance efforts, this kind of on-site training can be especially effective.
Schwartz Hannum PC has developed a one-day program for human resources professionals, labor relations professionals, in-house counsel and managers, for both unionized and non-unionized employers, who want to better understand and manage the big-picture and day-to-day operations of their businesses’ labor-management relationships.
Presented in an interactive seminar format, the program includes a discussion of the following topics.
Schwartz Hannum offers this important program periodically at the Firm’s offices. In addition, we regularly conduct labor-relations training at clients’ workplaces and are happy to tailor the program to clients’ individual needs and objectives.
Schwartz Hannum PC has developed an interactive program to help employers address the recent National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) Final Rule requiring that most private-sector employers post a notice to inform employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act. Employers will learn how to assess their union avoidance “health” and steps to help maintain a union-free environment.
We will discuss the NLRB’s “Employee Rights Under the National Labor Relations Act” poster that most private-sector employers will have to display beginning on November 14, 2011. And we will explore what employers must do to get ready to protect their workplaces against the pro-union impact that this new poster is likely to have.
