Scenario: Union Avoidance Project
You are a Human Resources Manager at BNY Mellon. At the current time, none of your employees belongs to a union. However, the International Brotherhood
of Teamsters, a national union, is attempting to organize your employees. The senior management of your company appears to be adamantly opposed to the presence of a union at your company and wants to do everything possible to defeat this union drive, including, if necessary:
?Speaking to individual workers, to let them know what management regards as the dangers of unionization, including economic harm to the company and possible layoffs.
?Assembling all workers, in large groups, to speak against unionization, and asking all workers to declare publicly whether they intend to vote for or against the union.
?Making pay changes, both up and down, to certain workers to prove that employees are better off without a union, and may suffer if they play too active a role in organizing.
?Immediately laying off all desk clerks and subcontracting the work to a part-time labor force.
?Other strategies suggested by your research as well.
Based on these facts, you are to prepare a union avoidance program for the company's Senior Management Team. This program should:
?Summarize management?s rights during an organizing drive and respond specifically to each of the possible actions listed above.
?Outline your complete strategy in supporting the company?s position of remaining union free.
