Location: MMA Headquarters, Lansing, MI

The National Labor Relations Board’s proposed “ambush election” rule will curtail the ability of nonunion employers to communicate with employees during union organizing drives, stripping business owners of their rights to ensure a fair election process. The rule is a close cousin to the NLRB’s 2011 rule change that briefly made it onto the books before being struck down in May 2012 on procedural grounds by a federal court. Like the 2011 rule, the proposed 2014 version reduces the allowable time frame for employers to express their views and respond to the NLRB from 42 days to as few as 10 days. Join us for this informative session.

Topics to be discussed:

  • Find out what you need to know about the NLRB’s newest “ambush election” rules
  • Determine what these new election rules would mean for your Company in a union organizing drive
  • Hear about other Federal rules that could impact the outcome of union representation elections
  • Learn how to defend yourself –before it is too late
