I just wanted to take a moment and personally thank you for lending us your expertise and hard work in helping [Company Name Withheld] remain Union-Free. You were instrumental in helping me stop the Teamsters, who had been previously batting 1000 against [Company Name]; winning several elections against this past year. With a resounding 50% margin of victory, I believe we sent them a clear message that we intend to remain union-free.

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.

It’s All Academic

It’s been said many times that unions are a thing of the past and if they want to survive they must adapt and adjust their “business model.” While it’s safe to say that they have put in an effort (breaking up bargaining units, minimum wage ventures, attempts at card check elections), they haven’t changed all that much.

Attempts to organize charter schools are one area in particular where we see that the business model is exactly what it was 17 years ago. And we can say that with sheer certainty because a 17-year-old Pennsylvania State Education Association document recently emerged that outlines their charter school organization strategy. Guess what? It’s surprisingly similar to recent efforts in areas like Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington D.C.

In other academic news, Harvard has appealed to the Board to reverse their decision that the 2016 election wherein the majority of graduate students voted against representation be invalidated.
