Taking Legal Steps To Prevent Union Organizing Activity
CE Smith Labor Law has protected employers from the union organizing activities of their employees for years. The best measure employers can take in union prevention is by maintaining fair and consistent working conditions, open communication between upper management and employees, as well as a constant improvement of the working environment.
Consider asking yourself the following questions:
- Are you seeing evidence of union organizing activity?
- Can you recognize the signs that indicate that your employees may intend to unionize?
- Is your management team trained to lawfully oppose unionization of your workforce/company?
- Will you be able to defend your company if unfair labor practice charges are filed by your employees or even by the union with a regional office of the National Labor Relations Board?
- A union threatens your organization with a loss of control over the direction and management of your company as they seek to unionize your employees for the union’s own financial gain.
When union organizing activity becomes evident, many employers feel that they have been attacked without provocation. To successfully prevent the formation of a union, you must lawfully exercise your rights.
