I think you provide excellent resources to us employers, especially those of us that are seriosly concerned about potential unionization efforts at our organizations.
F. Fernandez

I wanted to drop you a line to let you know about the terrific job Joe Brock and LRI did for our employees. Joe 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 appreciate of his work and the information he shared that he received many hugs, handshakes and thank yous on the last day. Joe 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. Joe 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 Joe and LRI at anytime.

Employee Free Choice Act Foot Soldiers

Big Labor is gearing up their push to make the EFCA the law of the land. They are beginning the campaign of talking to their constituency by “grass roots” efforts and direct mail. There are a few organizations, such as the national Chamber of Commerce and a few pro-business groups attempting to put up a fight. However, Big Labor definitely has the lion’s share of cash and foot soldiers on their side.

“The AFL-CIO announced Tuesday that it was starting “a ramped-up campaign” to make Mr. Obama’s campaign pledge a political reality, beginning this week with a massive mailing to more than 600,000 swing union households in the battleground states of Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

“That will be followed by a ‘massive campaign’ among 13 million union voters in August to promote Mr. Obama and specifically highlight his support for the labor law reform bill known as “card check.” It is estimated that organized labor will spend upward of $300 million in this year’s presidential and congressional elections – much of it promoting the card-check bill and tying it to its Democratic supporters.”

If you’re a business owner, you can donate to the Chamber and one or more of the advocacy groups. If you try to mobilize the only “foot soldiers” in your sphere of influence, as WalMart has valiantly attempted to do, you could become the next target for Big Labor.

The OTHER thing you can do is to start now to prepare your company for the possible onslaught. With some proper communication and management training, it is possible to make your company a “hard target” from the union point of view. There are experts (we among them) who can help you. Our EFCA Tool Kit is a potent tool for your arsenal in the defense against Big Labor.
