  AGC Labor Lawyers Hold 20th Annual Symposium
The AGC Labor and Employment Law Council held its 20th Annual Construction Labor Law Symposium on April 29-30 in Washington, DC.

About 50 Council members, prospective Council members, and chapter staff attended.  Guest speakers included Chairman Robert Battista and Member Ronald Meisburg of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), and David Thompson, majority labor counsel to the Senate Committee on Health Education, Labor, and Pensions.

The program covered a variety of timely labor law topics such as:  the impact of multiemployer pension plan withdrawal liability on collective bargaining; the pitfalls of using labor brokers and professional employer organizations; the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ employment verification pilot program; the changing definition of “supervisor” under the National Labor Relations Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act; the latest employment cases decided by the Supreme Court; and the latest developments in the union bannering cases pending at the NLRB.

Handouts from the presentations are posted on the Topical Resources page of the AGC web site’s Labor and Human Resources section.  Topical resources are indexed alphabetically by subject matter.

The Council is a network of seasoned labor lawyers who regularly represent AGC chapters and member firms.  For more information on Council membership, click here. [ return to top ]
