The Wind of Change at the NLRB: How US Labor Law is Being Dramatically Reshaped by The Trump Administration

With two new members and some reshuffling on the National Labor Relations Board, together with a newly appointed general counsel, the White House has wasted no time in charting a new direction for management-labor relations that departs dramatically from the last 8 years. Experts from across the U.S. will provide practical insight on how these changes will affect union organizing and unionized and nonunion businesses for years to come.

Experts from across the US will provide practical insight on:

  • Possible changes to Joint Employer Test and how this would impact the franchisee/franchisor relationship

  • Ongoing ability of unions to organize “Micro” units

  • Employer rights after a CBA expires

  • Whether the NLRB will continue to scrutinize non-union businesses’ employee handbooks and work rules

  • Continuing viability of the board’s Purple Communications Rule allowing company email to be used for union organizing

  • The Magnificent Seven GC Memos that were rescinded

  • How conflicts between the NLRA and other statutes will be resolved

  • Potential targets for future change
