Labor Management Relations / Union Avoidance / Practice Before the National Labor Relations Board

Dealing with Organized Labor

While the total percentage of America’s unionized workers is at a low point, organized labor in recent years is making a strong comeback, as evidenced by the creation of the “Change to Win” coalition, the pending “Employee Free Choice” Act and a higher success rate in National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) elections than in years past.

For more than 30 years, Mr. Wilson has represented employers before the NLRB, the California Agricultural Labor Relations Board and state and federal court in matters pertaining to union management relations.

Mr. Wilson assists clients in:

  • Union avoidance strategies;
  • Advising about labor representation elections, conducting election campaigns, including union decertification;
  • Management training and techniques on dealing with unions;
  • Negotiating union collective bargaining agreements;
  • Strike planning and response;
  • Arbitrating grievances; and
  • Managing the effectiveness of corporate and union campaigns.

Mr. Wilson advises both unionized and those non-union employers who wish to develop a union avoidance strategy.

Compliance and training are central to union avoidance

The best approach to union avoidance is to have a lawful and positive employee relations program that is effectively communicated to the workforce.
