Welcome to the Canadian HR Reporter/HRPA webinar series. This webinar is one of a continuing series that will bring you the most current HR related information, trends, practices, and insights for your professional development.

Webinar Description:

If you are union-free, you should try to stay that way. This is not a matter of magic, legal trickery or blind luck. It takes consistent and effective management practiced day-in and day-out, based on a long-term plan. The union only has to succeed once. To remain union-free, management has to succeed every single day, forever and always. In this webinar you will learn:

  • How a union gets organized - the legal steps
  • Signs of union organizing and how to train your management team to react
  • Management rights during a union organizing campaign
  • Free speech in the days leading up to a representation vote
  • The consequences of union organizing
  • Most important - effective management practices especially when there is no union in sight

This webinar includes a 15 minute Q&A plus 1.5 HRPA recertification points.

Who should attend:

HR Professionals
Labour relations consultants
