Last year, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB)’s General Counsel was relentless in overturning precedential decisions and standards impacting both unionized and non-unionized employers. The result was an overall employee-friendly shift to labor laws encouraging both unionization and concerted employee actions impacting working conditions. Key developments included restricting confidentiality and non-disparagement clauses in employee severance agreements, and attacking certain restrictions in noncompete agreements.

Labor unions seem to be having a resurgence after being on the decline for many years. Employers are concerned with this shift, and are wondering what they can do to within the bounds of the law to keep a direct relationship with their workforce. In this Quick Chat video, Baker McKenzie Labor & Employment lawyers discuss the current labor union landscape, what’s causing this wave of union activity, and some steps employers can take to get out in front of the escalation in union organization.
