March 8, 2022: Strikes, Job Actions and ‘Concerted Activity’: On the Rise for NonUnion and Unionized Business
The pandemic has created enough stress on the economy to last a lifetime, and the unique pressures experienced by employees have resulted in a drastic increase in workplace activism. Organized labor has responded by resorting to well-known, but rarely used, tactics, which has created a resurgence in strikes, protests and other concerted activity. During the pandemic, workers left their jobs in droves, creating the “Great Resignation” of 2020-21. The result? Employees have more leverage today than they have had in decades. Organized labor is seizing the opportunity by dusting off the strike as a bargaining weapon. In light of these developments, unionized employers need to carefully plan for bargaining and anticipate whether they are vulnerable to job actions. Meanwhile, non-union employers need to assess whether they are ripe for concerted activity. And of course, the National Labor Relations Board is poised to assist with the most labor-friendly agenda in years. This session will help you identify and plan for the risks you will face when dealing with this unprecedented environment, and identify strategies to address the threat of strikes, job actions and concerted activity to make sure your business is protected during this unsettled time.
