The main objective of this session is to help you avoid unions if you choose to do so. By the time the session is over, you will be able to understand employee union-organizing rights; identify reasons employees join unions; identify reasons employees reject unions; recognize signs of a union-organizing campaign; and take legal and effective action to avoid unionization in your workplace.
Why “Strategies for Legally Avoiding Unions” Matters:
The National Labor Relations Act promotes collective bargaining between labor and management, and it assures workers the right to organize and join a union without fear of reprisal. Despite this federal law protecting workers’ union rights, there are many effective and perfectly legal steps you can take to keep unions out of your workplace.
- Employees have the right to join unions without fear of reprisal.
- Make sure you understand the requirements of labor laws regarding union organizing.
- If you identify the reasons employees join unions and the reasons why they reject unions, you can develop effective and legal strategies to discourage unionization.
- Two-way communication with workers is one of the most powerful strategies to avoid unionization.
