Only five percent of the retail industry workforce is unionized. Yet retailers — an industry that collectively is one of the nation’s largest employers — should be more concerned about workers’ interest in union organizing than more traditionally unionized industries. In an increasingly competitive industry related to the dominance of online retailers and growth of the direct-to-consumer channel, a strong focus on fostering positive employee relations helps protect both the advantages of remaining union-free, as well as the customer loyalty and sales associated with a positive brand reputation. 

Please join us for this complimentary one-hour webinar to discuss the following trends in the retail industry and ways to protect your business. 

  • The increased risk of union organizing related to negative publicity generated by union front groups, such as the Retail Action Project, and retail-specific employment legislation, such as predictive scheduling and paid leave. 
  • The main drivers of union organizing and the relationship to brand reputation. 
  • How to effectively communicate with employees and mitigate negative publicity through positive employee relations.
