    In December, the NLRB issued a revised regulation that speeds up union election times from the current median of 38 days to as little as 14. This change is a significant bow to labor unions and will significantly hurt your company’s ability to respond if a union tries to organize your workforce. Plus, the NLRB issued a significant ruling in a case that affect your company’s ability to control your company’s corporate email. In a case called Purple Communications the NLRB overruled prior case-law and said that employees may use corporate email for union organizing purposes during non-working hours. In the same ruling, the NLRB also overturned another long-standing case that allowed companies to prohibit employees from using a company’s photocopier for union organizing purposes. Lastly, the NLRB decided it will now look more closely at labor arbitrators’ decisions and may even rule while an arbitration is on-going.

    The above are all significant changes that both non-union and unionized employers need to understand and adjust to in their strategic and day-to-day management. The labor unions are expected to take advantage of these changes immediately while the appeals are considered and filed.

    Building and maintaining a successful print shop takes dedication and commitment. The business of print is communicating.  We communicate through written words, images and color. Managing this business effectively drives bottom line results.  It involves many areas in the business, including: sales, customer service, procurement, prepress, quality control, the pressroom and finishing.  Ultimately, there has to be a return on our investment to make it viable. How can ROI be achieved? Does it take an outside consultant to help build links between the various “islands” in a plant? Should there be a dedicated on-staff expert? Does your team need additional training?  Do you know what your normal base-line production tolerances and capabilities are?
