    Need help with Labor Relations?

    Join us…learn more about Labor Relations in 2017

    and how this could affect your organization…..

    What are Unions?  A labor union is an organized association of workers formed to protect and further their rights and interests.  Unions are increasing their pressure to convert union-free companies and attract new members here on Guam, whether it be through conventional organizing campaigns, lobbying for union-friendly federal and local legislation, or, increasingly more common, using their economic weapons to force employers to agree to neutrality agreements.  Unions also actively seek to amend the national labor laws to make it even easier for them to unionize a workplace.

    James Teague, President & CEO of Sparta Solutions, will provide first hand training from the experience as a former union organizer who worked his way up in the Union world and then crossed over and became an advocate against union organizing. 

    In this half-day training session, we will learn about unions, the National Labor Relations Act and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and their impact on how we do business today and in the future. For example, the NLRB has decided that employees on Guam will now mail their ballots to Hawaii instead of on-site voting which is a huge advantage to the union over employers on Guam.

    We will learn what employers should do to help create a work environment where employees view unions as unnecessary.  If a union does begin circulating authorization cards or files a petition for election, James will give specific suggestions for employers on Guam on how to craft a strong drive against unionization and give an overview of how the hearing process, the election campaign, and the election itself works.

    DO NOT miss this interactive training sessions.  A hardy breakfast and snack will be served at this session.  Space is limited, so register and reserve your seats today!
