The 5 Labor Blogs You Should Be Watching Now

From controversial rules to helpful advice, the amount of information and number of “experts” in the labor field these days can be overwhelming. Paring down your information to regular updates from these 5 sites will keep you informed, aware, and not the least bit stressed!

National Labor Relations Board

Of course, begin with the National Labor Relations Board website, which frequently writes and shares articles on a range of labor topics. What better way to get your news than from the horse’s mouth? While the NLRB site is a good place to start, it is also valuable to read reactions to their posts and rulings on other labor relations blogs, like the ones listed below.

Labor Relations Today

The team at McGuireWoods has you covered when it comes to keeping ahead of new rules and regulations with their blog, Labor Relations Today. Most recently covering the Department of Labor’s new Persuader Rule, LRT is a great resource for the most pressing labor relation issues.

Union Proof

This blog keeps labor relations professionals informed of the latest developments with free labor updates every Monday morning, on topics including Micro Unit organizing and wage changes. The UnionProof team at Projections also offers new articles and content, published on their blog every Tuesday. Thursdays, you can find fresh content on human resources topics and on Friday, Insider Members receive The Shorts, a sometimes-irreverent look at the latest labor news. Each week, UnionProof offers readers a wealth of knowledge.

The Society for Human Resource Management

The world’s largest Human Resources membership organization, The Society for Human Resource Management, or SHRM, has been around for close to 70 years. Whether you’re looking to learn more about the recent “Ambush” Elections rule, or stay on top of the latest news on the Purple Communications case, you’ve come to the right place.

NLRB Employee Handbook

The Employer Handbook

Looking for something a little different? The Employer Handbook, by Dilworth Paxson LLP’s Eric B. Meyer, is a comprehensive site which adds a humorous slant to your everyday labor relations reports. With tongue-in-cheek blog titles and a witty (sometimes snarky) tone, The Employer Handbook is great for quick bites of news during your day.
