Upcoming Webinar: “The NLRB Comes to Campus: An Update on Union Activity at U.S. Institutions of Higher Education”

The Employment Law Alliance invites you to attend our free March 19 webinar, “The NLRB Comes to Campus: An Update on Union Activity at U.S. Institutions of Higher Education.”


The NLRB is posed to revisit many issues affecting U.S. colleges and universities in ways that will have lasting impact on union activity on campus. Thus, all institutions of higher education should be aware of recent and pending developments in order to stay abreast of these issues.  Join us as a panel of experts from across the U.S. discusses recent union organizing efforts as well as the NLRB’s recent activities on campus. They will provide a national perspective and timely updates in the following key areas:

  • The National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) is revisiting Yeshiva. Learn how this landmark Supreme Court decision, which classifies faculty as members of management, is being reviewed.  This and other recent NLRB activities will be discussed.
  • Student-athletes? Graduate students? The evolving definition of employees covered by the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”).
  • Religious or state institution?  Employer “once removed”?  Learn about the increasing uncertainty of exemption from the NLRA and the NLRB’s use of joint employer status to assert coverage.
  • Contingent faculty? An update on adjunct organizing efforts around the country.
