Thursday, September 14, 2023 2:54 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)


When: Wednesday, October 04, 2023, 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM

Location: CATA HQ 18W200 Butterfield Rd., Oakbrook Terrace, IL 60181

Targeting non-unionized dealerships! Join CATA’s Employee Relations Counsel to learn about the latest NLRB ruling, how it might impact your dealership, and what steps you should take to try to avoid unionization attempts.

Is your dealership prepared to meet the challenges of the reinvigorated union movement?  Are your supervisors prepared to educate your employees about the reasons you prefer to remain union-free? Do they know the tell-tale signs to identify potential union organizing activity before organizing efforts go public?

New rules for organizing workplaces and a very union-friendly administration have emboldened unions to increase organizing efforts across the state and within the automotive industry. This presentation will provide attendees with:

  • Basic overview of the legal structure in which union organizing takes place
  • Review of recent NLRB rulings and how that impacts your dealership
  • Strategies and techniques that unions use to organize employees
  • How dealers can implement policies, practices, and programs to avoid union organizing campaigns before they begin in the form of positive employee relations

The goal of this session is for dealers to leave with an understanding of labor law compliance and union awareness/organizing efforts and the tools to help them create a workplace where third-party representation is not necessary and where employees feel heard and respected.

Join Ms. Jamie M. Hasty, Vice President of SESCO Management Consultants, for this extremely valuable session. SESCO is a partner of CATA and offers human resources support and compliance services to CATA members.
