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.

Union Free Media Coverage

Got Teamsters?  A guide for employees–before you vote to join a union.

by Joseph Brock – former Teamster local President

Got-TeamstersWhat if a former union insider – a high ranking official – could tell your employees exactly what goes on in union business meetings, and how the union really views its “members?”

Joe Brock is that man, and he doesn’t pull any punches. Part of his credibility stems from his belief that unions could still provide a useful service to employee, if they would get back to their original foundations. He knows not every employer is perfect, but after 25 years, he also knows that most often, the employee’s best option for making things better is working with the company rather than against it.

Joe Brock was born into a Teamster home and was raised on picket lines and in union halls. He became a union organizer, and moved steadily up the ranks to become the President of a large local. Eventually, after 25 years in the Teamsters union, he knew he was on the wrong side.

Joe left the union and now works for the benefit of employees, describing how to properly evaluate union promises made during organizing campaigns in light of legal realities and union track records.

Don’t let the title mislead you. Although Joe’s background was with the infamous Teamsters union, he has spent the last several years addressing work forces in almost every industry imaginable, facing organizing drives by all of the major unions.

Here’s a list of some of what Joe covers in this fast, easy read:

  • Sources of unbiased information about unions (NLRB, LM-2’s, union constitutions)
  • What you’ll find in union constitutions (fines & fees, discipline, other costs of membership)
  • The truth about collective bargaining (union bargaining chips, contracts & ratification)
  • Union contracts (dues check-off, union security, management rights, grievance procedures)
  • Strikes & picket lines
  • Union corruption
