The face and tactics of labor organizing have changed significantly in recent years as a result of social media use, corporate campaigns, intrusive NLRB remedies, and aggressive labor union tactics. In addition, recently-enacted rules and new decisions by the Labor Board are likely to embolden unions and increase your company’s exposure to organizing in the coming year. In this unique workshop, Jackson Lewis attorneys will place you in the heart of some of the most challenging union organizing issues faced by employers. This day-and-a- half workshop is unlike any other seminar offered on this important topic. The simulation exercise takes participants through a mock union organizing drive and is designed to challenge even the most experienced labor professionals. We will focus on how to effectively collaborate over labor issues within your organization, make difficult decisions in a time condensed manner while contemplating both the practical and legal implications, and minimize exposure to unfair labor practice charges that can hinder your company’s efforts.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
 
In-house counsel, managers, labor relations and human resource directors, senior executives and business owners. Regardless of your experience with union organizing and elections, this workshop will provide the strategies and tools you need to determine how to respond effectively and aggressively to labor organizing.
 
Fee:
$695 per individual attendee.
