“Unions are a by-product of a bad relationship and can devastate a Company and its employees,” states Peter List, Kulture’s Founder & CEO. Today, when employees flirt with the thought of unionizing, the problems generally stem from a lack of two-way communication within the organization. Unfortunately, union organizers are trained to manipulate employees’ emotions, which lead employees to falsely believe that unionizing is the only solution to their concerns when it is not.
“We believe that communication is a major factor in the breakdown of the relationship between employees and their employer,” says List, “and that is the first thing we try to restore on behalf of our clients.”
During a union organizing campaign, both the employees and their employer find our services of great value because we provide an invaluable service to both—that is providing an education in what unionizing actually means to employees—what it is and what it is not.
