One of CUE's greatest assets is the members themselves.
CUE's networking resources provide members with opportunities to connect with like-minded, passionate people; to get and give advice on everything from labor relations to employee engagement to legislative and political developments; and to build lasting relationships.
including peer-to-peer networking
Join our LinkedIn Group for CUE members and conference attendees. The group is private and moderated to assure that only people who are a part of a CUE event can join.
Our annual Spring and Fall Conferences, along with our year-round Local Regional events, combine networking, sharing and learning to build lifelong relationships and share best practices.
Our member network is vast and profound reaching into various industries and every level of business, so whatever the question... CUE can connect you to someone who can help.
We helped these members, and we can help you, too.
A Fortune 100 employer member asked:
Do you have any materials, or know of members that do, on advising new employees in right to work states of their right not to join a union already on site? Same for employees in bargaining units in states that become right to work states, so they know they have the choice now?”
This request was published in our weekly newsletter that is sent out to all active CUE members. Individuals from six CUE member employers responded by sharing their approach on this complicated topic. We also connected the individual seeking help to several external groups that were able to provide additional ideas and assistance on the topic.
A Fortune Global 500 employer member asked:
I’m a research fellow at…which is a think-tank research organization for... In particular, my role is to conduct research to develop HR and ER policies as well as practices for my client. I am preparing a short report on the Employee Relations climate in South Carolina for our potential factory planned there. Part of the research is case studies of union elections in the area: Electrolux in TN, Boeing in SC, and Nissan in MS. I thought that it might be useful to conduct a case study with these three cases about what's in common and what is different and the implications for ER strategy."
Our Executive Director at CUE reached out to a number of CUE member employers with operations in South Carolina for their assistance on this request. Several CUE members spoke with the researcher to discuss their employee and labor relations experience doing business in South Carolina. We also connected the researcher with local members of our Labor Lawyers Advisory Committee (LLAC) and our CUE Consultants Advisory Committee (CCAC) who act as subject matter experts for CUE. These individuals contacted the researcher and provided several hours of local labor market information at no charge to the CUE member seeking assistance, saving them thousands of dollars.
A Fortune 100 employer member asked:
I'm reaching out because I am working on an initiative regarding campaign strategy. I'm looking to speak with individuals at organizations who have gone through union campaigns (ideally recently) to better understand the strategies, tools and external resources they used. I am particularly interested in any technology solutions (i.e. apps, dark sites) developed and used in the process."
Our Executive Director at CUE connected this member with several companies that recently experienced union organizing campaigns who shared their experiences. We also connected the member and some individuals from our CUE Consultants Advisory Committee (CCAC) who create communication tools including websites and videos who were able to provide specific product recommendations and technology solutions.
