Trump’s NLRB after Two Years


We are pleased to invite you for an evening with NLRB CHAIRMAN JOHN RING who will be discussing hot topics before the NLRB.  Topics to be covered will include:

  • current rule-making (election rules, graduate students representation rights, joint employer);
  • the adoption of the contract coverage standard in unilateral change cases;
  • access rights of union organizers; and
  • what now constitutes protected concerted activity.

Even if you do not directly practice before the Board or arbitrate traditional labor cases, you will find this program illuminating. PERC and other public sector labor boards often look to the NLRB for guidance, so what comes out of the NLRB will have ramifications throughout the labor world. No one is better qualified to speak on these issues than CHAIRMAN RING.
