What’s the Deal in Labor Relations in 2017?

  • March 25, 2017

Labor and Employee Relations in the Trump Era

The slide deck entitled “What’s the Deal in Labor Relations?  Labor and Employee Relations in the Trump Era” was presented by Michael VanDervort (@CUEinsca on Twitter)  and Phillip Wilson (@ApproachableLeader on Twitter) at the 2017 SHRM Legislative and Law Conference #SHRMLeg.

Our general thesis was that in his heart, President Donald Trump is a deal-maker, and that he will run his labor policy in that fashion. We believe he will be more business friendly, but will work pragmatically with labor unions that will support his agenda, especially on issues like trade, infrastructure or building a physical wall as part of desire to close the southern U.S. border.

You can check out the full deck on slideshare.  If you are looking for someone to speak on this topic, feel free to contact me or Phil.

The final Department of Labor Persuader Rule is here.  Do you know what it means for your organization?  It’s ugly and overwhelming in many ways, according to these “fun facts compiled by Walter Orechwa at Projections, Inc.


The DOL’s analysis of the Paperwork Reduction Act: the annual recurring burden on employers, labor relations consultants, and all other persons required to file Form LM-20, and Form LM-10 is a mere $1,263,499.59 (that’s one million, two-hundred sixty-three thousand, four-hundred ninety-nine dollars and fifty cents).

To fill out Form LM-10 will only take 147 minutes per report/filer at an estimated cost of $226.70 per report.

To fill out Form LM-20 will only take 98 minutes per report at a an estimated cost of $151.14.

The DOL received approximately 9,000 comments on the proposed rule and apparently listened to only 2 of them to write the rule.

There were an average of 191 LM-20 reports filed last year and that number is expected to go up to 4,194.

As for LM10’s, they will be waiting with baited breath for the estimated 3,414 filers, which is up from the previous average of 930 reports.

Join us on Thursday April 28th at 2 PM ET, Phil Wilson of Labor Relations Institute will tell you the Goodthe Bad, and the Ugly about the new rule and how it will impact your company or law firm.
