Labor Relations and Collective Bargaining – Human Resource

Labor Relations and Collective Bargaining – Human Resource is a lecture which is covered during Human Resource Management Module.

The main purpose of this lecture is to help you deal effectively with unions and grievances. After briefly discussing the history of the American labor movement, we describe the basic law, including unfair labor practices. We explain labor negotiations, including the union actions you can expect during the union campaign and election. And we explain what you can expect during the actual bargaining sessions, and how to handle grievances.

Interesting Issues:

Some people call Costco “The Anti-Walmart,” because Costco treats its workers and unions so well. Whereas Walmart is known for difficult labor relations (it said, for instance, it was eliminating health insurance for future employees working under 24 hours per week), Costco actually keeps profits up in part with positive labor relations policies. We’ll see how they do it.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Give a brief history of the American labor movement.
  2. Discuss the main features of at least three major pieces of labor legislation.
