The Labor Board has utilized its decision and rule-making authority to expand its reach and the definition of “protected concerted activity” to many different areas including handbooks, employer investigations, policies and procedures. In addition, previously blocked Board rules and decisions designed to “update” the NLRB election process and assist unions in organizing new members will be implemented very soon. Ultimately, you must consider and adopt an entirely new labor relations strategy to guide your organizations and prepare for this completely new challenge.
