National Labor Relations Board seminar in Mansfield, Ohio

The Alber Enterprise Center and The Ohio State University at Marion will host a National Labor Relations Board Seminar, Thursday, May 20, 1 to 4 p.m. at the Employee Participation Council of North Central Ohio, 1495 W. Longview Avenue, Mansfield, Ohio.

The seminar will cover the basics of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and how pending legislation in the U.S. Congress may amend the Act.  The discussion will examine employee rights in the private sector under the NLRA and what constitutes protected concerted activity.  Emphasis will be placed on unfair labor practices committed in a non-unionized work setting, during a union organizing campaign, and shortly after a union is certified as the representative of employees.  Current Board procedures and remedies will be compared to the proposed changes that are now pending before Congress as part of the Employee Free Choice Act.
 
The following people should attend, human resource representatives, supervisors and managers; small business owners; union stewards and business agents; employees; and anyone who wants to learn more.  The seminar is free and limited to 50 participants.  For more information or to register, visit:
