Opinion: Unions pick off another restaurant company

In this installment of the Working Lunch podcast, Align Public Strategies talks about a big move by Shake Shack

Align Public Strategies is a full-service public affairs and creative firm that helps corporate brands, governments and non-profit organizations navigate the outside world and inform their internal decision-making. This article does not necessarily reflect the opinions of the editors or management of Nation's Restaurant News and Restaurant Hospitality.

The unions are back at it. Another chain of burger joints has been targeted in Oregon. Align Public Strategies discusses the ramifications for the rest of the industry.

Shake Shack is running a test of a four-day workweek for supervisors in its Las Vegas, Nev., units, and Align principals examine the pros and cons. The team looks at how that may play out and its potential impact on other brands.

Finally, the Align crew talks to Jeremy Bess from Revenue Management Solutions about the operational challenges and opportunities of recycling at the unit level and what that may mean politically. The episode ends with this week’s legislative scorecard.
