LAW 9514 - Labor Law


Labor unions exercise significant influence not only in the business world, but also in the political arena. Why have unions had such power, what are the limits on this power, and how can employers respond to unions’ concerted activities? This course identifies the specific protections provided by the National Labor Relations Act and also examines the reasons why those protections exist. The duty of both the employer and the union to bargain collectively in good faith will be explored. The primary focus will be on private sector labor relations, but public sector labor issues, such as whether public sector employees have the right to strike and the right to collectively bargain, also will be discussed.
