Counseling "Union Free" Employers
In recent years, labor unions have become increasingly aggressive in attempting to organize various groups of workers in various industries. “Change to Win” and other coordinated union organizing initiatives have dramatically increased the need for employers to maintain both positive employee relations and a vigilant eye. Recent legislative initiatives such as the proposed Employee Free Choice Act (“EFCA”) threaten to further enhance organized labor’s ability to gain a foothold in your organization. We routinely counsel employers regarding preventive strategies that enhance positive employee relations and decrease the chance that the employer will be confronted with serious union organizing activity.
