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.

The election of President Emmanuel Macron in early May upended France’s political system.  The sensation continued last week as his party, Republic on the Move!, (which didn’t exist 14 months ago) won the majority in Parliament. This parliamentary victory for Macron is huge, granting him the insurance he needs to push through legislation without much friction. However, there are still French unions to deal with, and while they lost much of their sway in parliament in the last election, Macron knows how important it is to still handle them with care.

Australia’s Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU) is one of the largest unions in the country. And it is about to be under investigation by the newly established Registered Organizations Commission. The ROC is a union watchdog and it has reason to believe the union, specifically the mining division, is misspending funds it has been collecting from members since the early 1990s.

A civic strike at Columbia’s largest port in Buenaventura brought the city to a standstill earlier this month. The mass protest was put on by social and community groups demanding that the government issue “a state of social and economic emergency and provide basic quality of life improvements.” Currently, Buenaventura’s ports bring in $1.8 billion in annual revenue, yet most of its 400,000 residents live in poverty.
