Union Organizing Can Make Companies Feel Powerless & Vulnerable - UnionProof Certification Will Fix That
The potential for union organizing is something every company must be keenly aware of. And when a union is actively asking employees for signatures and support, fear and stress can quickly take over. Get proactive and gain the skills you need to prevent unionization and build a UnionProof culture.
For most leaders in charge of maintaining their company's union-free environment, labor relations training has been by fire or osmosis. And for some, training came right in the middle of an organizing campaign - giving them little to no shot at remedying the problem.
Additionally, the extensive labor knowledge required to achieve a successful, union-free workplace is daunting. Facing labor lawyers, union reps, consultants, and peers without the proper understanding of how unions work can be difficult and embarrassing.
UnionProof Certification will give you the knowledge you need to be prepared in any labor relations discussion or situation.

Easily Broken Down With Additional Resources
"I like the way the course content has been broken down. The session homework assignments reinforce the session information in respect to the specific union(s) we may be facing. I love, love the supplemental reading materials and the glossary of terms and the office hours."
Informative and In-Depth
"The course is very informative! It gave me the tools to understand why Unions exist and the implication it brings to have a unionized company. The host is very pleasant and does a very good job explaining each subject. The links that are provided are full of information that helps me understand, in depth, the concept that is taught. It is a lot of information to digest. I am truly looking forward to learn everything that the course offers!"

SHRM & HRCI credits
I have always considered Projections the authority on this kind of training. They have provided the professional resources to protect businesses for many years. I'm excited about the opportunity to get both SHRM and HRCI credits. It is one thing to know what you should do, and another to be able to prove that you do.
Should Be Considered "Mandatory"
Walter and Team, great work here, as always. As ER/LR leaders, Walter’s message here should be considered “mandatory” messaging for all organizations large to small—exec to entry leaders need to understand the importance of constantly assessing their workforce’s levels of engagement. Always sustaining and looking for ways to improve. Walter articulates, in a clear, concise manner the merits of this positive culture work and the real pitfalls when focus here is lost. We all know this. The Union-Proof Team offers this and many other tools to aid us in spreading the word and developing accountability in our org ranks.
Bob R. Morton
Walter, you are killing me here! The more of these tools you create and the more employers make use of them the less likely guys like me will get that panic phone call that goes something like, "I just got a letter from the NLRB saying that a union has filed a petition for a union representation election! What do I do now?" All joking aside, outstanding work!
Become The Most Trusted Labor Relations Professional In The Room
This course is for...
- Labor relations professionals looking to get an edge in an increasingly crowded marketplace.
- Traditional human resources professionals looking to get up-to-speed on labor relations.
- Leader of a human resources or labor relations team, looking for strategies to build a UnionProof culture without spending a fortune.

The Cost of Certification vs. The Cost of Inaction
The true costs are often found in not having a UnionProof culture. How much is lack of engagement costing you? How many employees would sign a union authorization card if approached today? How many reasonable efforts by upper management fall on deaf ears or are met with suspicion from employees? What would an organizing campaign cost you, not just in dollars, but in time, energy, and stress?
The truth is, you may already be paying a great deal.
Frequently Asked Questions
On average, each of the 24 lessons should take about an hour. So, if you’ve got an hour a week to devote to it, it will take you 6 weeks. If you’ve got an hour a day, you’ll finish in one month. And if you’re really ambitious, you could knock it out in a day. But we don’t recommend that. At all. Please eat and sleep during your Certification.
Once you complete the lesson, simply click to take the quiz. Under your quiz, you’ll see a “Mark This Lesson Complete” button. Click that to unlock the next lesson!
UnionProof Certification is meant to be completed as a masterclass. Therefore, the material ahead relies on the lessons behind. You may think you know everything there is to know about union finances, but if you aren’t sure what’s on an LM2, you’ll miss a vital part of your training.
The workbook is an integral part of your training. The online lessons are general in nature (such as learning about what a Solicitation and Distribution policy is and how it can be important to remaining union-free). The workbook will bring that lesson home and ask you to make it relevant for your organization (such as finding your Policy in your Handbook and checking to see if it is sound enough to withstand an organizing drive). Once you’ve completed your Certification, your completed workbook will serve as a robust and incredibly useful resource, always at your fingertips for reference.
The knowledge you gain during UnionProof Certification will help you support both groups. As you become well-versed in understanding the NLRB, how unions work, their history, and how they interact with companies today, including decertification, you’ll have a great foundation to support those represented employees. At the same time, you’ll gain strategic ways you can provide non-union employees with the tools and resources they need to maintain a direct relationship with management.
Once you complete your final exam, we’ll send you your Certificate, as well as all the information you need to use your credits toward recertification.
