Supervisors' Union Avoidance Playbook: What Management Should And Shouldn't Do When Organizing Is On The Table
If your workplace is not currently unionized, pay close attention: April 14, 2015 is the effective date of the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) final ambush election rules. More than ever, you need to have sophisticated union avoidance strategies in place to counter this dramatically shorter election timetable.
What's your best weapon for union avoidance? It very well may be your frontline supervisors and line managers. But it's not enough for them to be anti-union. In fact, the appearance of hostility towards unionization could lead to a host of legal problems.
Because supervisors and managers are so integral to the overall worker experience, isn’t it time to consider the critical role they play in staying union-free? Join us on and bring your frontline supervisors and line managers along, for this informative and timely event on how they fit into your overall union avoidance strategy.
