A Summit: What's Next for the NLRB?

February 29, 2008 - NYC

In September, the NLRB issued over 60 decisions that have critics arguing that the Board has rewritten the NLRA and decisional law so that it no longer protects workers' rights to organize and that its decisions violate the national labor policy of encouraging collective bargaining. Board supporters see the decisions as protecting the rights of employers and necessary to meet of the realities of a global and post-industrial economy. So which is it, and what should be done about it? Should the Act be amended?

Join our distinguished panel to discuss several of the recent decisions (Dana, Toering, BE&K, etc.) that raise public policy questions about U.S. national labor policy, its implication for workers and employers, and where law should be headed.
