Abstract:

This chapter describes the legal framework for labor relations, including the laws, organizing campaigns, collective bargaining, and contract administration. Current labor law supports two major objectives. First, it supports stability through collective bargaining and defined dispute resolution. Second, it tends to equalize the balance of bargaining power between employees and management. National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) legislation included some very important provisions: (1) employees have the right to form, join, or assist unions, the freedom to bargain collectively with the employer, and the right to engage in group activity; (2) employers must bargain collectively with the employees’ certified bargaining representative and must refrain from employer unfair labor practices (ULPs); and (3) the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB, or Board) became the regulatory body responsible for administration of the NLRA. The majority of national unions within the United States belong to the voluntary federation, the American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFLCIO). There are three basic categories of bargaining subjects: mandatory, permissive, and illegal and prohibited. All of the systems inherent in labor relations must be seen as dynamic, changing entities, primarily based on changes in the laws and regulations themselves, decisions of agencies participating in the administration of the laws, and decisions of the federal and state courts.
