Steve Swirsky Quoted in “Workers Looking to Disband Unions Get a Hand”

Bloomberg BNA Daily Labor Report

Steven M. Swirsky, Member of the Firm in the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management and Health Care & Life Sciences practices, in the firm’s New York office, was quoted in the Bloomberg BNA Daily Labor Report, in “Workers Looking to Disband Unions Get a Hand,” by Hassan A. Kanu.

Following is an excerpt:

Employees looking to kick a union out of their workplace got a bit of help Aug. 1 from the National Labor Relations Board’s top attorney.

NLRB general counsel Peter Robb directed agency lawyers not to object when a worker who petitions to disband the workplace union wants to intervene in a related unfair labor practice case. That gives union opponents more power to fight against a union’s efforts to stop or slow down the process of giving a labor organization the boot. …

Steven Swirsky, an Epstein Becker Green attorney who represents businesses in labor-management disputes, told Bloomberg Law he “wouldn’t be surprised” if conservative groups such as the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation used the procedural step against unions.

“They’ve been pretty resourceful,” Swirsky said.
