Employer Behavior in Certification Elections and First-Contract Campaigns: Implications for Labor Law Reform

Other Titles

Abstract

"Organizing is an extremely risky and arduous venture for American workers. As the experience of the last twenty years has shown, a combination of unfettered employer antiunion behavior and weak and poorly enforced labor law make for an ‘unlevel playing field’ stacked against unorganized workers and unions. Using survey data from private-sector certification election and first contract campaigns, this chapter will first examine the impact of NLRB practices and legal and illegal employer behavior on union election and first-contract outcomes. It will then evaluate how labor law reform would reduce the ability of employers to undermine workers’ efforts to organize and win first agreements."
