Managing Unionized Workforces Workshop and Seminar 

An interactive workshop hosted by leading labor lawyers that is designed for in-house lawyers, executives, directors of labor relations, human resources executives, production managers and supervisors, business owners and others who manage a unionized workforce and want to be in a much stronger position to do so in a way that will result in reduced costs, increased efficiency, and less Union involvement and interference with your business.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Health Care Reform: What are my options?
  • Pension Funds: Withdraw and pay, or stay in and keep your fingers crossed? And what about fund audits – how do you deal with those?
  • Social Media and the NLRB – what you need to know.
  • Buying and selling a unionized business – what do you need to look out for?
  • Negotiating collective bargaining agreements that save money and improve efficiency.
  • Instituting Operational and Financial changes mid-term during the CBA.
  • Bargaining to impasse and implementing the contract of your dreams.
  • Lawfully eliminating the Union altogether
  • Using incentive based pay and production standards to drive performance
  • Union using the Government (DOL, NLRB, INS) as agents and how to defeat these tactics.
  •  Limiting Union Interference and involvement in your business.
  •  Winning grievances, arbitration and other employee and union litigation.
  •  What non-union companies have to fear from the NLRB and how to prevent this governmental agency from intruding on your internal operations.
