Great information all lumped into one web site.
R. Balser

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.

We use the articles and information every day!

Election Results and Expectations

If you are interested in election prognostications and missed our Fall Labor Update Webinar, you should review it here.  For another list of potential impacts to labor professionals, take a look at the details behind this list posted by Fisher & Phillips attorney Jeffrey Mandel. His list includes the following:

  • Immigration
  • Labor relations
  • Pay equity
  • Data security
  • Supreme Court nominations
  • Employee leave
  • Workplace safety
  • Wage and hour
  • Affirmative action and federal contractor compliance
  • Non-competes and other post-employment restrictive covenants

All four states that had a ballot initiative to raise the minimum wage passed them (Washington, Arizona, Colorado and Maine). Right-to-work met with mixed results, with Alabama enshrining the existing right-to-work statute in their constitution, and Virginia defeating a right-to-work initiative. However, due to Republican election victories at the state level, expect to see additional statewide right-to-work laws proposed for Kentucky, Missouri and New Hampshire.
