Overview Union Awareness Workshop
One of the best ways for a business to remain union- free is to be aware of the issues and reasons that often drive employees to organize. Wages, benefits, job security and safety are the concerns which frequently pit the workers against the company. From this awareness, a proactive campaign to avoid unions should be implemented utilizing clear communication with employees, fair treatment of workers and well-executed human resources policies. Attorneys from the Labor & Employment Group of Bose McKinney & Evans have developed a workshop to teach managers how to establish policies and lines of communication to help prevent union formations. Should a movement toward unions begin, the attorneys have steps management should take during the campaign to reduce the likelihood of votes in favor of a union.
