Recent changes to the National Labor Relations Board signal a policy shift that will affect both unionized and union-free employers. The NLRB’s General Counsel has called for “vigorous enforcement” of employee rights, and new and unique remedies to punish employers for unfair labor practices and during union organizing drives. The pending infrastructure bill and other legislation would assist unions in organizing and collective bargaining, and add penalties such as monetary damages for NLRA violations. The NLRB’s recent initiatives support the Biden administration’s commitment to promote union organizing.
On December 17, 2021, the Council of Industry will host attorneys Thomas McDonough and Robert Guidotti from Council Associate Member Jackson Lewis PC as they address the changes to labor laws and procedures proposed by the NLRB and pending legislation, and their effect on manufacturing employers who are already dealing with a difficult business climate. Tom and Rob will also discuss steps for employers to protect themselves and remain compliant in a challenging labor relations environment.
