On September 20, 2018, I presented a complimentary webinar called “Union Basics for Employers.” For those who couldn’t attend the live webinar, I’m happy to make it available for you to watch at your convenience.
In the webinar, I discuss:
- Representation Procedures
- Grievances and Unfair Labor Practices
- Strikes and Lockouts
This webinar may be helpful both to companies that are currently unionized and those that are not. The content primarily focuses on private companies subject to the National Labor Relations Act. This includes most businesses other than governmental entities.
Why You Should Watch “Union Basics for Employers”
Let’s face it, most employers would rather not have to deal with a union. While this webinar mentions some tips for staying union-free (i.e., be a good employer), the emphasis is on explaining what it means to have a union.
Topics include how unions come to represent employees in the first place and what happens once the union is in. I also describe the primary procedure for employees to vote their union out.
The webinar is also a good primer for human resources personnel joining a unionized company for the first time. Learn what to expect and what it all means for your company.
If nothing else, learn how to better co-exist with a union in your workplace here.
