This CLE will highlight the following issues, among others:

• Defining terms: Picketing v. Striking v. Handbilling v. Bannering
• Understanding the Groundrules: What is Lawful Speech and Enjoinable Misconduct?
• Trade Jurisdictional Disputes
• Dealing with Picketing and other jobsite labor disputes
• Establishing a "Reserve Gate" system
• Remedies: State Court Injunctive Relief v. NLRC Charges and Federal Court Injunctions
• Getting the Project Built: Practical Solutions
• Outliers: Unique Situations Presented under Project Labor Agreements
