The Employee Free Choice Act (“EFCA”), labor law reform legislation currently under consideration by the United States Congress, would bring about the most sweeping changes to America’s labor laws since the National Labor Relations Act was passed in 1935. The EFCA’s passage would dramatically increase the pace of union organizing across all business sectors in all regions of the country. The union-sponsored EFCA would:
- Eliminate employee secret ballot elections in favor of “card check” certification
- Dramatically increase penalties for employer unfair labor practices
- Impose contract terms on employers through interest arbitration where no first contract is reached.
At this breakfast briefing we will discuss the serious risks to employers that the currently proposed EFCA would create, the actions that employers and employer associations can take to defeat or change this legislation, and the internal steps that your company should consider taking NOW, to reduce or avoid the impact of the EFCA.
Don't be caught unprepared.
Who Should Attend:
The briefing is directed toward in-house lawyers, HR Directors, HR staff, and managers of, and consultants to, employing entities who have a substantial union-free workforce.
