A union organizing drive can be an intimidating and emotionally charged time for both employers and employees. To guide you through the numerous issues that arise during a union organizing drive, you need experienced and tested veterans who know how to coordinate and manage successful campaigns. We have that expertise gained from specializing in winning elections for more than 30 years. In fact, we are not aware of any other consulting firm that can match our resources, proven and diverse staff of professional consultants, and winning track record that LRSI has achieved in over three decades.
Our ability to directly interact with voting members is one of the unique aspects that set us apart from other firms. Most firms simply manage campaigns from behind the scenes, but our highly trained professionals will meet face-to-face with employees voting in elections. These face-to-face interactions can make all the difference between winning and losing.
Many organizations have found themselves in the midst of a union corporate campaign, which essentially is an assault by a union to undermine an organization's reputation with shareholders, community leaders, customers, politicians, media, creditors, employees, banks, clergy, regulators, etc. These tactics are often used by unions to apply pressure on organizations to agree to voluntary union recognition, sign neutrality or code of conduct agreements, or as an alternative method to an economic strike during collective bargaining.
LRSI can provide sound public relations strategies to help organizations navigate through and mitigate the effects of a corporate campaign and preserve your employee rights and key relationships. A campaign attacking your public image is one an organization cannot afford to lose and our professionals can help ensure that you don't.
Our professional consultants will provide your employees with all the information they need to make an informed decision. LRSI has access to a vast database of factual information on every union in the United States. This information is critical for legally and factually educate your employees. Without it, employees will be making their decision based on hearing only one-side of the story and with only the information the union wants your employees to know.
Dissatisfied employees, on their own and within certain time frames, have the legal right to file a petition with the National Labor Relations Board to decertify (remove) their union representative. Once this process has started, management can legally answer employee questions, provide information, and even express their views. LRSI can help navigate your organization through the decertification process and ensure that your employees have the information they need to make an informed decision. Knowing what you can legally say and do during a decertification election can be the difference between winning and losing.
