[HRM] Case 2

Labour Union benefits workers, through using collective bargaining.

Managers’ roles(labour relations specialists) : negotiate with Labour Union –>

Labour Relations Strategy

  1. Acceptance strategy
  2. Avoidance strategy – union substitution (doing so good that workers don’t have incentive to join union) or union supression (sometimes maybe unethical)


Legal Environment

US: Wagner Act, Taft-Herley Act, Landrum-Griffin Act.

Why understanding  and following law important?

  1.  Doing right things – moral view
  2. Limitations of HR and legal department
  3. Limit violations

Importance of labour union

Union Membership are reducing in the US. Now only 11%.

Sometimes had too much power.
