A Labor Law Breakfast Briefing, Union Organizing Under the Obama Board
(New York, NY)
New York, NY 10019
Please join us for a complimentary breakfast briefing on important labor law developments that employers need to know concerning new union organizing tactics and changes to the National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB) election procedures, scheduled to take effect on April 30, 2012.
We will address the following issues:
- How do the NLRB's new election rules change practices that have existed for more than 50 years?
- What impact will these changes have on union organizing activity?
- How are unions changing their tactics through corporate campaigns, card-check recognition and other techniques to avoid NLRB-supervised elections?
- What actions should employers be taking now to prepare for union organizing campaigns?
The new election procedures, which some have referred to as "ambush procedures," change the dynamics of union representation elections dramatically. They are accompanied by a new requirement for employers to post a "Notice of Employee Rights" published by the NLRB, which also takes effect on April 30, 2012. Copies of the notice will be available at the briefing.
Fred Braid, Michael Starr and Howard Sokol, Labor, Employment and Benefits Group partners in New York, will address the issues identified and will be available to discuss other issues of concern to participants.
