Understanding the NLRB Stunner: The New Critical Importance of a Union Request for Recognition


Register to Watch Replay


Of critical importance to nonunion employers, on August 25, the National Labor Relations Board announced a new framework for determining how employers get unionized. Effective immediately, if a union requests or demands that an employer recognize it as the representative of its employees, and that union has proof that a majority of those employees have designated the union as their representative, the employer can no longer decline the request and simply wait to see if the union proceeds by filing an NLRB petition.  

What does this mean for employers? Please join Ryan Funk, Matthew Fontana and Alexander Preller, attorneys in Faegre Drinker's labor management relations practice, for a webinar discussion of the implications of this decision, how to manage union organizing activity while the rule is in place, and proactive steps employers can take to spot potential issues and minimize risk.


3:00 – 4:00 p.m. ET
