In this episode of the Third Thursdays podcast, Ruthie Goodboe and Tom Davis discuss the new final rule on union elections that the NLRB issued on December 13. The Board did not rescind the “ambush” or “quickie” election regulations that went into effect in 2015, but did alter some—though not all—of the provisions that many employers found particularly challenging.
In this episode of our Third Thursday series, Ruthie Goodboe is joined by Luther Wright, Jr. to discuss strategies employers can use to respond to issues of race, social injustice and other difficult subjects. Our speakers address barriers to healthy communications, proactive actions employers can take, and how to employees can engage on an individual level.
