On December 12, 2014, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) announced new union election rules that will affect private sector employers. These rules cover all NLRB representation petitions and set forth an "accelerated election" process which gives employers less time to explain the pros and cons of unions. The new rules will stimulate union organizing activity and directly impact how your company must deal with union organizing efforts. Private sector employers are at immediate risk of union organizing activities and should take steps to prepare.
We are ready to help you get up to speed on these new rules - quickly. Please join us for a complimentary breakfast briefing in our Chicago office the morning of February 11, 2015. Michael Best attorneys Tom Scrivner, Brian Paul and Ben Johnson will share:
