Event Description

It is important not to wait until you first hear of union cards being signed in your workplace. The best way to avoid a union is to ensure your employees don’t feel you need one. And if union organizers do show up in your workplace, it is important for you to understand the rules in an area fraught with pitfalls. While there is much you cannot do as an employer during an organizing drive, it is equally important for you to know what you can do to communicate with your employees.


Topics covered:

  • What action can be taking prior to a Union organizing drive?
  • How does a union “get in” to a company?
  • What does certification mean?  What is the process?
  • What can management do or say during an organizing drive?
  • What should management NOT do or say during an organizing drive? 
  • Progressive union alternatives as protection?
