CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 22, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Carolinas Associated General Contractors (CAGC) has launched a website to complement its robust Pro-Employee/Union Free resources to help the Carolinas' construction industry deal with union organizing activity and new "ambush election" rulings from National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). The new web site, www.CAGCUnionFree.org, features CAGC's "Pro-Employee/Union Free toolbox," which includes a model employee handbook, NLRB checklist, union free help desk, access to training opportunities and other resources necessary to successfully deal with union organizing tactics and activities.
"The Carolinas are ripe for aggressive union organizing tactics. That's why CAGC and the law firm of Ogletree Deakins have decided to lead the way to help employers prepare," said Allen Gray, CAGC Utility Division Director.
The new "ambush election" rule is the latest in an ongoing effort by the Obama administration to use NLRB rulings to provide unions with tools giving them an upper hand over employers when targeting employees for union organizing.
"Employers in the Carolinas are considered easy targets by unions because our pro-employee/union free environment has kept most organizing activities to a minimum. However, with the implementation of the new rule unions will be emboldened to step-up their efforts and we must be prepared," continued Gray.
CAGC has been active in keeping the Carolinas union free for over 90 years, with full-time staff and resources dedicated to the effort. With recent NLRB rulings, CAGC is ramping-up efforts. Along with Ogletree Deakins, CAGC is providing the construction industry with the resources and information necessary to prepare for increased union organizing activities and leading the way to keep the Carolinas pro-employee/union free.
