What to expect in 2012 – Union activity/changes

Our speaker, Phillip Wilson is President and General Counsel of Labor Relations Institute, is a national expert on labor relations and creating positive workplaces.

Wilson is a highly regarded lecturer, an adjunct professor at Northeastern State University, and the author of numerous booksand articles on labor relations, union corruption and creating a positive workplace, including: The Next 52 Weeks; Managing the Union Shop; and Model Contract Clauses.

He has been called on multiple occasions to testify before Congress on the subject of union financial reporting requirements.

Wilson graduated magna cum laude from Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, and went on to earn his J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School. Prior to joining Labor Relations Institute, Wilson practiced law at a Chicago firm where he represented companies nationwide in all areas of labor and employment law. He has also served as director of human resources for a multimillion dollar gaming corporation.

Phillip’s discussion will focus on what to expect in 2012 regarding NLRB activities.

The year 2011 was peppered with high-profile labor stories: Wisconsin, Boeing, NLRB and DOL rulemaking, and the Occupy movement. Phillip Wilson will educate members on what promises to be an even more eventful 2012. Wilson will explain:

  • What Obama’s "recess without a recess" appointments to the NLRB mean for HR departments in 2012
  • The surprising way the Occupy movement is impacting companies, labor unions and HR departments
  • Will or won’t your HR department have to comply with the new NLRB notice posting requirements?
  • How the proposed DOL “persuader” rules impact your company’s compliance costs
  • Steps you can take today to help insulate your company from the volatile regulatory environment

Don’t forget to come with any burning labor questions you have, as Phil will save time for Q&A at the conclusion of his session.

We look forward to Phillip’s presentation and hope you can join us!
