Tuesday 06/25/2019 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM Add to calendar
1.00 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: Communication, Relationship Management | Intended Audience: Mid-Level
Workplace Application:
Learn all there is to know about the new rules and key strategies of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) for effective labor/employee relations in 2019. 

After spending his first year erasing the actions of the Obama-era NLRB, President Trump’s board has set its sights on locking in employer-friendly rules for the next decade. The era of a pro-union NLRB is officially over, which has led to increased union organizing and organic, spontaneous employee protests. This session covers key new decisions at the NLRB, the tactics and organizing strategies now being deployed by labor unions, and how employers can respond. It concludes with an interactive discussion of how to develop a comprehensive seven-step program for maintaining effective employee relations and avoiding the challenges that can arise if a workforce is not effectively engaged.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how the NLRB continues to change rules on union elections, joint employers, and handbooks, policies and practices.
  • Review strategies for effective pro-employee labor relations practices.
  • Successfully and legally manage union organizing campaigns.
