In the wake of COVID-19, employees are reassessing what they need from companies. As workers recognize their importance to employers, they in turn realize that they deserve fair benefits and compensation as well as a voice. As such, unions have grown in popularity. Companies like Starbucks, Amazon, and Apple are at the forefront of 2022’s union efforts. Close to 250 Starbucks stores alone filed for union election petitions with the National Labor Relations Board in the past year.
In this episode of HR Work Break, McAfee & Taft labor and employment attorney Charlie Plumb joins HR Daily Advisor editor Madeleine Collins to discuss recent unionization efforts, how to show workers you value them, and the importance of communication in leadership. Charlie has written several pieces for HR Daily Advisor about state and federal employment laws and regulations.
