The Future of Labor Unions in the Private Sector
What you Need to Know About Micro-Unions, Work Centers and Right-to-Work Laws
Live webinar $209; Live webinar + recording $279.
Although private sector unionization is declining, there are current efforts by the government to expand alternative and informal forms of worker’s organizing. These informal organizing efforts are taking place in every private sector industry and region-regardless of size, money or history.
Aside from that, there is secondary organizing happening among the public in relation to customers, suppliers and distributors of private sectors goods and services. Meaning that organizers are protesting and picketing your suppliers, distributors, independent contractors and customers.
It’s important to know that unions are are increasingly teaming-up with civil rights and religious organizations to mobilize employees and non-employees for increases in wages and benefits.
Business owners and operators need to understand when, why and how these organizing efforts are occurring in order to protect their organization.
Join Charles Krugel, an experienced labor and employment attorney, as he lays out the best strategies for protecting your business from micro-unions and work centers and what right-to-work laws mean for you. He will explain what every employer needs to know to deal with these issues.
