Employers Expect More Organizing from "Divided" Labor

Via Working Life blog, we have this analysis by union-busting law firm Morgan Lewis:

If the [Change to Win] Coalition’s members follow through on their threats to disaffiliate from the Federation later this year, employers can expect an increased interest in union organizing. This could be especially true for the nation’s largest non-union employers. For employers with existing unionized workforces, this means increased pressure to execute some form of neutrality and card-check recognition agreement.  For employers with unions from both competing factions at their facilities, competition for better wages, benefits and other terms and conditions of employment is likely.

Employers are not expecting this to be good for them, which is good news for labor folks.
