In the second part of the program, the presenters will address potential changes that the Biden administration may make to national labor policy. In addition, the presenters will explore what steps the National Labor Relations Board might take to secure greater protections for workers, and to increase union membership and activity in the workplace, through potential rulemaking, policy changes, and reversal of recent Board decisions.
