Please join Seyfarth Shaw for this St. Patrick's Day discussion of the future of private sector unions in the U.S.

Just as St. Patrick banished the snakes from Ireland, unions are on the verge of being banished from the U.S. private sector.  Today, unions represent just 7.2% of workers in the private sector, the lowest level since before the Great Depression.

That could all be about to change, however.  With a majority of its membership appointed by President Obama, the National Labor Relations Board will be on the front line of labor law reform this year, looking to grow dramatically the percentage of unionized workers in the private sector.  How will they do it, and what does this mean for the non-union or partially unionized employer?

Please join us to find out.
