Today, labor organizers are utilizing modern technology and social media platforms to unionize workers in ways the drafters of the NLRA could not anticipate. Employers should be aware of these modern trends to better respond to labor organization efforts under key NLRA sections. This presentation will highlight strategies used by labor movements, provide context to recent agency decisions, and offer concrete steps employers can take to ensure compliance with the NLRA.
