tlhis service is a REAL service to non-union and unionized companies, alike. I appreciate being able to download this valuable strategic information--especially when it is free.

This is a very important website. I am a Union worker but an American First and the idea of open/non-private voting is repugnant to me. It flies in the face of American tradition where your vote is and should be CONFIDENTIAL. Most Union employees feel as I do and they need to know what this is all about. As far as I know, I hope, this sort of thing is not happening in the Union to which I belong. If I find out it is I will protest. All I can say is keep up the good work. I will pass this around to everyone I can. They cannot intimidate me.

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.
