I wanted to drop you a line to let you know about the terrific job LRI and your consultant did for our employees. He was extremely knowledgeable, easy to work with and has great interpersonal skills that allow him to genuinely connect with employees at all levels. Our facilities mechanics and custodians were so appreciative of his work and the information he shared that he received many hugs, handshakes and thank yous on the last day. He also left management with a lot to think about and a road map of what needs to be done differently. Our employees ultimately voted to overwhelmingly defeat the Teamsters 43-no to 3-yes that allows us to continue to work directly with our employees in their best interest giving the us the opportunity to make things right. You consultant was a great partner to HR as well, collaborating on the strategy and actions needed to make the union campaign a success. Thank you again for the great service. I would welcome the opportunity to be a reference for LRI at anytime.

Big-box ordinance in Chicago

The Chicago city council passed a minimum wage and benefit standard ordinance for Wal-Mart and other “big-box” retailers who want to develop an abandoned steel plant property (I wonder who came up with that idea – I’ll bet it has something to do with why the steel plant property is now abandoned). Not surprisingly, Wal-Mart (and so far everyone else except a Lowe’s store that apparently was on the hook before the ordinances passed) are taking a pass. “If this is the effect that big-box ordinances have on business,” one City Council-member says, “we’re probably cutting off our noses to spite our face.” Duh.
