New Union Activities webinar
Prevent or conduct an effective election campaign
By Tim O’Toole
The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) will present New Union Activities on Wednesday, July 18, 2012, at 10:00 AM CDT.
There is always a calm before the storm. After “sitting it out” for the last three years of the present administration, organized labor is poised to flex its organizing muscle in 2012. With the help of its ally, the National Labor Relations Board, and new strategies, organized labor believes 2012 will be a make-it or break-it year for union organizing. The key to retaining non-union status is the utilization of progressive, enlightened management techniques coupled with the knowledge and tools necessary to meet the union challenge. This webinar is designed to assist you in your efforts to prevent, and if necessary, conduct an effective election campaign. If you are interested in successfully weathering the storm, we urge you to participate.
