Prepare for unionization efforts with new ATA publication

Ata Nonunion

LeClair Ryan attorneys Clinton S. Morse and Mark B. Goodwin, a former transportation executive, have authored “Maintaining Non-Union Status: The Big Picture – And the Nuts and Bolts.” The publication, available through ATA Business Solutions, emphasizes positive employee relations and strict compliance with the law at every level of the company as the keys to maintaining long-term nonunion status. Trucking companies of all sizes that are either employee-based or those that use owner-operators can benefit from the common-sense tactics recommended by Goodwin and Morse.

The two parts of the publication are geared toward different audiences. The “Guide for Owners and Senior Management” covers the decisions and actions that must be made by company executives; it also provides corresponding guidelines for supervisors at the local level. The “Handbook for Local Supervisors” also is available separately and can be purchased in large quantities to distribute to supervisors at all of a company’s locations.

For more information or to order the book, go to or call 866-821-3468. Goodwin is available to conduct a one-day workshop specifically tailored to a company’s owners and senior management. Those executives will receive hands-on training and in-depth workbooks.
