Know the Employee’s Rights Under the Law

It is hard to believe after the last eight years, but Non-Unionized employees are protected under the law and Unions are spending big money to educate these employees. You can be prosecuted for breaking the law.

If you don’t listen to your employees you will never know when they are going to complain using the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). In the past employers without unions believed they could easily violate the NLRA in day-to-day operations. You don’t need an expensive firm to tell you that treating employees fairly will get you their loyalty.

The Employee Free Choice Act Will be law. Don’t be in a position to be prosecuted.
The passage of the EFCA will
dramatically change your workplace. You will be forced by law to do things you could do now on your own, you can recognize and bargain in good faith with a labor union without requiring a secret-ballot vote!
That is the law now. Why pay to avoid what is already the law? Under the EVCA signed authorization cards can be obtained before you’re even aware of the Union campaign. If you interfere in the card-gathering activities, you would be subject to civil penalties!

Learning:
* The
EFCA and how it would modify existing law

The EFCA will create real penalties for NLRA violations, including increased use of injunctions to remedy possible violations and the ability to impose fines of up to $20,000 for each violation

Employers have the right to talk to employees now. They can participate in their employee’s lives by listening and improving working conditions. You can stop a UnionUnion. When you find bad management, learn how to respond appropriately, go to the employees, talk, and find out what is going on. They have great ideas and they want you to succeed so they will have jobs. before the Union organizers ever show up. They will be showing up and it’s more important than ever for your supervisors to learn how to treat employees and to stop the first signs of bad management. Unfair treatment, intimidation. Favoritism. These are the things that will bring in a

Learning :
Educate supervisors to understand the economic and non-economic reasons why employees may turn to a union
Train supervisors to respect employees rights if they engage in union activity, including what they can and cannot say
Teach supervisors to be willing and available to discuss employee concerns and answer any employee questions

Make Unions Irrelevant Through Effective Employee Relations
Employees’ acceptance or rejection of union representation is heavily influenced by the relationship they have with their supervisors. So what can your management team do to improve that relationship? Train your supervisors to become involved with the employees and not to see them as raw material.

Learning
The “jerk manager ” – who they are and why they lead to unionization and how to avoid it
Promote the type of supervisor that employees want to work for will help keep your workplace union free
Holding supervisors accountable for their human relations performance and how it helps your union avoidance strategies

Establish communication and management policies that instill positive manager-employee relations

Bonus – Many reversals of Bush era “employer friendly” rules are expected. You may no longer be able to call the janitor a supervisor because he or she is able to write. Learn how to give them respect now, and make it seem like your idea, not the result of a new law.

Use the Art of Persuasion To Stay Union Free IF EFCA becomes law, employers will no longer have the extended period to intimidate fire and coerce employees to reject a union. With fewer tools, employers will have to ramp up a new strategy based on persuasion. You could hire a consultant, but if you start now you won’t need to.

mood is ripe for unionization

Create programs that will position your company as an “employer of choice”
Why building support in the workforce
can go a lot farther than fear in persuading employees to reject unionization

Make Unions Irrelevant Through Continuous Employee Involvement
Honestly Educating the workforce about unions while doing nothing for your own employees is the worst defense against unionization. “You don’t really want better pay and benefits, do you?” Learn how to use a long-term approach that begins with new hires and continues with sustained information that’s delivered to the workforce using employee surveys, internal magazines and company intranet.
If you treat your employees well they will be your best allies.

Start early to Fight Organizing Campaigns
After the passage of the EFCA if you find a union has targeted your workplace, it is probably too late. Your employees are not happy and you didn’t know it. The way that you respond will be very important, because it could result in unfair labor practice claims and hugely expensive legal bills. When the EFCA passes, illegal actions will be severely fined. The additional penalties, including one that requires triple back pay for unfair labor practices deemed willful or repeated.

Learning:
Under the EFCA illegal actions will be monitored. Both unions and employers will be subject to fines for illegal practices during the organizing process
The EFCA will not preclude employers from exercising their free speech rights under the NLRA to communicate with employees before they make a final decision on the issue of unionization You can communicate now and every day, long before you will ever see an organizer. You have a tremendous head start.
