Sometimes finding that balance can be extremely difficult for those in human resource roles. This become especially hard when dealing with monetary issues. It is always easier to have a conversation when you are providing a new benefit that provides more money, rewards, or time off. However, when it is reverse it can cause a serious uproar. This could lead to lower morale, attrition, and poor performance. Therefore, how this information is delivered is important due to the sensitive nature of the topic. In the case of the topic here there are several key factors. First the company received good feedback from the employees saying they felt it was a good place to work. This is great because it showed that things are being done right and people want to be there. So, with that in mind you must make sure you disclose the news in way that will help to reduce the chances of workers feeling betrayed. Next is the downturn in the market. It is obviously not a good thing that the market is declining, but it does shift the blame to something that people can understand is out of the companies control. So, when breaking the news to the company you can leverage that an explain to the people that this is temporary and we expect the market to turn soon. When factoring in the market downturn leading to no increases that will be very impactful to the employees. Far as the employees joining unions that can have serious impact on the company and could shift the culture. It will be important for supervisors to understand the laws around employment. People often join union because they feel they have been wronged. So, first it is important let the employees know that this was not something done intentionally. It is also important to let the supervisors know that we have ways of preventing the employees from joining the union. One of those things are to have the employees sign a yellow dog contract. In doing this we would have legally gotten the employees to agree to not join union.
