Union Vulnerability Assessment

The Union Vulnerability Assessment is a proprietary tool for measuring your vulnerability to unionization from three perspectives.

  • The risk of your employees seeking union representation
  • The risk of your business being targeted by union organizers
  • Your leadership team’s capability to execute a union-proofing strategy

Union-Proofing Your Organization

Keeping unions out of your organization is something that has to be earned every day. The bottom line is trust. If your employees trust that you have their best interests at heart, and you can consistently demonstrate it, the likelihood of a union getting a foothold is greatly reduced. If your employees do not trust you, it’s only a matter of time before someone picks up the phone and calls a union organizer. In this post Employee Free Choice Act world, you cannot afford for that to happen.

We know unions at PeopleWorks. We know how they think, how they act, how they organize and why employees turn to them. With our help you can act immediately and with a sense of strength and confidence that you are doing the right things at the right time to protect your organization from harm. Give us a call to discuss how we can help you “union-proof” your organization despite the EFCA.
