Labor unions are on an aggressive plan to gain new members, which has significantly increased the interest in organizations to install a union avoidance strategy. The best way to avoid unionization is to create and sustain a healthy, employee-focused organization. Walking the talk that “our employees are our most important asset” can go a long way toward ensuring great employee relations.
Pragmatic HR Consulting can help you with your strategic goal of staying union-free. This is accomplished first through our labor organizing risk analysis and then through our employee relations consulting expertise.
Viewing union avoidance as a strategic initiative, as opposed to a tactical reaction to labor organizing, increases the likelihood of successfully fending off these attempts. Once a union starts the organizing process, it is often too late to make any substantive changes in the way employees are treated. At best these reactionary attempts may be viewed as manipulative on the part of the employer and at worst as a violation of labor organizing regulations.
Our union avoidance services can help you proactively address the underlying drivers behind union organization prior to the presence of labor organizing activity.
