You will learn all there is to know about the new Trump Labor Board and key strategies for effective labor/employee relations in 2018. 

President Trump hit the delete button on eight years of Democratic control of the NLRA and the pro-union activities of the Obama Board. The era of a pro-union NLRB is officially over. This change has also ushered in an increase in union organizing and “organic” and spontaneous employee protests. This session will cover the key new practices and decisions at the NLRB as well as the new tactics and organizing strategies being deployed by labor unions. We will conclude with an interactive discussion of how to develop a comprehensive seven-step program for effective employee relations. This session will help you will learn how the Trump Labor Board has changed: 

  • The standard for “PCA” issues on your handbook, policies and practices.
  • The rules concerning conducting union elections and appropriate units for elections.
  • The strategies for effectively developing pro-employee labor relations practices.
  • How to successfully and legally manage union organizing campaigns.
