Aug. 31 – NLRB Update and Impacts on Union Organizing

The National Labor Relations Board and the General Counsel from the NLRB have continued issuing decisions and enforcement guidance which are employee and union friendly.  Some of these decisions and actions make it easier for unions to organize employees.  However, these changes apply to all employees, so even if your employees are not currently represented by a union, they apply to your employees as well.  In addition, the labor movement has been emboldened by some of these decisions and recent organizing successes.  So now is not the time to become complacent.  Learn what these cases and guidance mean for you.
