Union leaders continue to actively lobby for key provisions of the Employee Free Choice Act. The potential passage of that pro-union legislation, coupled with government efforts focusing on the alleged misclassification of independent contractors, gives unions fertile ground for organizing campaigns.

In response, LeClair Ryan attorneys Mark B Goodwin, a former transportation executive, and Clinton S Morse wrote Maintaining Non-Union Status: The Big Picture—And the Nuts and Bolts.

This practical publication emphasizes positive employee relations and strict compliance with the law at every level of the company as the keys to maintaining long-term non-union status. Trucking companies of all sizes that are either employee-based or that use owner-operators can benefit from common-sense tactics recommended by Goodwin and Morse.

The two parts of the publication are geared toward different audiences. The Guide for Owners and Senior Management covers decisions and actions that must be made by company executives. It also provides corresponding guidelines for supervisors at the local level. The Handbook for Local Supervisors also is available separately and can be purchased in large quantities to distribute to supervisors at all of a company's locations.

For companies that crave more detail, Goodwin can conduct a one-day workshop specifically tailored to a company's owners and senior management. Those executives will receive hands-on training and in-depth workbooks.
