A recent headline proclaimed: “Unions warn Senate Democrats: Pass the PRO Act, or else.” 
 
This captures the significance of the bill presently before the Senate. Labor describes the PRO Act as “historic legislation,” and indeed it is, altering the balance of labor law by restricting employer rights while expanding union rights in myriad ways. But the PRO Act is not the only challenge facing employers today.

In his first days in office, President Biden fired the Trump-appointed NLRB General Counsel, and appointed a new Acting General Counsel who promised to “vigorously enforce” Obama-era precedents which expanded the rights of employees to protest in the workplace and made it easier for unions to organize new members. A newly constituted NLRB majority can be expected to align with this agenda. 

The new Administration actively supports a reinvigorated labor movement, and studies suggest that this is gaining traction among a growing percentage of workers. Reflecting our divided politics, unions have worked hard to create the perception that anyone who suggests a union isn’t the right solution in the workplace is on the wrong side of history. 

Join Jackson Lewis P.C. attorneys as we discuss how employers can meet these challenges, take a position that fits within the current discourse, and create and maintain a healthy workplace culture.
