American Conference Institute’s Advanced National Forum on

NLRB & Labor Law Disputes and Litigation

Thursday, March 21 to Friday, March 22, 2013
The Carlton Hotel, New York, NY

The premier conference devoted entirely to the unique challenges companies face when dealing with both union and non-union work forces, led by an unparalleled faculty of the nation’s most experienced in-house counsel, labor officials, and law firms

With the recent changes occurring with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), labor-management relations has become the main concern for companies with both union and non-union workforces. The new NLRB will drastically alter the labor relations landscape.

However, other factors also stand to impact the relationship between management and their work forces. A down economy has forced many businesses to make difficult decisions, often resulting in work force reductions, hour cuts, plant relocations, and plant closings. At the same time, the collective bargaining process stands has become increasingly complicated. Furthermore, non-union companies are presented with different, but no less complicated challenges, including responding to corporate campaigns, maintaining positive employee relations in the face of a heightened unionizing atmosphere, and responding to claims of unfair labor practices. 

How should management respond in the face of these difficult challenges?  Arguably, a company’s most important relationship is that between management and employees.  Failing to effectively maintain this relationship can and will prove costly. It is thus imperative for management and their counsel to understand and prepare for the complex changes to the labor relations landscape, whether union or non-union.
