President Obama's recent recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board will likely reorient the NLRB in a radically pro-labor direction.  The new democratic majority on the Board has openly discussed reversing many key pro-employer decisions handed down by the prior Republican Board and changing the way union elections are handled even if the Employee Free Choice Act is not passed by Congress.

Our team will:

  • Review the current state of the National Labor Relations Board
  • Discuss what changes employers might expect from the new Democratic Board in current labor law and NLRB procedure
  • Consider how these changes will impact the ability of unions to organize the workforce
  • Examine how employers should respond to these changes

Our panel consists of attorneys with significant experience advising clients on labor law, labor relations and employment law, including assisting companies in responding to union organizing campaigns.
