Organized Labor in 2021: An Overview of Recent Trends and Predictions for the Future

The ongoing global pandemic and the November elections ushered in a number of changes for unions, including remote organizing, novel collective bargaining conflicts, and the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act. In addition, the uncertain future of representation-case rule amendments, ongoing pandemic-related protected concerted activity, and myriad new National Labor Relations Board rulings—including a November 9, 2020, decision establishing new standards for conducting mail and manual ballot elections—have presented new labor challenges for employers. During this webinar, the speakers will review where organized labor has been and where it is heading as this unpredictable year draws to a close.
