Unique Labor Relations Seminar to Protect Corporate America

PHILADELPHIA, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 5, 2007 -- A unique labor relations seminar to help Corporate America deal with the threat of labor's new militancy as seen in its stepped up organizing efforts and in its campaign to win passage of the Employee Free Choice Act will take place in three cities, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland.

The seminar will be conducted by one of North America's most prominent labor relations experts and strategists, Stephen J. Cabot, chairman of the Cabot Institute of Labor Relations ( Mr. Cabot is the author of numerous best-selling books, including "Everybody Wins!" and "Up From Confrontation." He has been profiled on the front page of The Wall Street Journal and named "the best in the world" by the Toronto Star.

The seminar is divided into two all-day sessions. The first day deals with non-union issues, such as Big Labor's Agenda for the 21st Century, Union Proofing: Proven Strategies for Maintaining a Union-Free Status, Defusing workplace Issues, and The Evolving Rules of Engagement.

The second day will be devoted to union issues, such as The Collective Bargaining Process, Preserving the Right to Make Entrepreneurial Decisions, Blueprint for Decertification, and What to Do When the Union Wins.

"The unions are on the march," says Mr. Cabot. "They plan a huge push to organize as many companies and workers as they can. If they succeed, many corporations will be operating at a significant disadvantage to their foreign competitors. Now is the time for Corporate America to arm itself with the knowledge and skills that will be needed to stop the unions in their tracks. Our two-day labor relations survival seminar is designed to accomplish just that."

The seminar will be held in Philadelphia on May 23 and May 24; in Pittsburgh on June 6 and June 7; and in Cleveland on June 21 and June 22.
