The Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) of 2007, HR 800, is expected to be revived and passed under President Obama.  EFCA is expected to make it easier for unions to organize companies.  Whatever the new rules turn out to be, be sure that you turn to an experienced Labor Consultant to lead you through the organizing and contract negotiations process.

Since 1971, I have assisted companies with all aspects of collective bargaining with unions and can, if necessary, provide union avoidance consulting including developing a counter union campaign if a union does approach your employees. 

If your company already has a union contract, I am a skilled union contract negotiator.  I may assist your company with grievances, union arbitrations, federal mediations, and be your hearing representation at National Labor Relations Board NLRB hearings.
