The Employer's Guide to Union Organizing Campaigns
Norcross, GA (PRWEB) September 15, 2008
Jackson Lewis LLP and Projections, Inc. are pleased to announce the availability of an Employee Free Choice Act "Defense Kit" for employers. The Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) is the most significant piece of proposed employment legislation since the Civil Rights Act of 1991. If enacted, EFCA would effectively take away the right of employees to vote on union representation in a National Labor Relations Board supervised secret-ballot election, substituting a system in which the important issue of union representation is decided by a majority card count. In contrast to elections held under current Federal law, in place since 1935, there would be no pre-election period to provide employees the opportunity to learn the facts about union representation. Instead, signed cards would decide this very important issue, irrespective of whether employees had access to accurate or complete facts.
If passed, EFCA would require enlightened employers to communicate with employees frequently and proactively to ensure employees are prepared to make an informed decision.
Billed as the "Ultimate Union-Free Solution," the EFCA Defense Kit includes 6 DVDs and a Power Pack of printable materials, designed to address the information gap in upper management, employees, and supervisors regarding organized labors' current legislative agenda and the need for immediate training and education.
This ground-breaking kit offers the unprecedented bonus of a 526-page book, "The Employer's Guide to Union Organizing Campaigns", and a $100 discount off Jackson Lewis' "How To Stay Union Free," a 2-day intensive management education seminar.
Michael Lotito, Partner at Jackson Lewis, said, "This is a very exciting opportunity for us to help employers feel empowered in a time of political uncertainty. It's a strategic approach to the Employee Free Choice Act that includes everything employers need to create an issue-free workplace that will, in turn, make unions irrelevant."
Walter Orechwa, CEO of Projections, Inc. commented, "30 years of experience has shown that providing the right resources - the specific tool, in the right format - can do more than just meet employee communication needs. Our tools help employers create the strongest workforce in their industry. Projections is pleased to be able to offer a comprehensive approach to the EFCA that addresses all levels of the company, and we are looking forward to working with Jackson Lewis to help companies solve real business problems and produce measurable results."
