HR Domains (Career GPS): Employee Relations; Occupational Health and Safety; Performance and Rewards
As traditionally “union heavy” industries diminish, Canadian unions are actively employing new and more aggressive strategies to shore up their membership numbers.
Union-free employers that wish to stay that way must educate themselves on the union organizing process, the risks to their workplace and proactive strategies to both avoid and address a union organizing campaign.
Lawyers from Sherrard Kuzz LLP, one of Canada's leading labour and employment law firms assisting employers with union organizing, will take listeners through these issues and more in this one hour webinar.
