Collective Bargaining: The Basics

Collective Bargaining: The Basics


COURSE DESCRIPTION: For the past several decades, unions organizing campaign efforts and union membership have decreased. Recently, however, with the introduction of pro-union legislation in Congress, namely the Employee Free Choice Act, and with increased efforts of unions to target non-manufacturing employers, specifically those in the service industry, union organizing efforts are on the rise.


It is now increasingly important for employers to recognize and respond to union organizing in their workplace. This short training course is intended for presentation to business leaders, managers and supervisors who manage employees. Join us and at the end of this course you will be able to:


  • Describe the tactics and steps union organizers use.
  • List reasons employees consider unionizing.
  • Cite signs of union organizing.
  • List steps management uses to combat the union effort.
  • List Do’s and Don’ts for management involved in union campaigns.
