Define and discuss the term "collective bargaining." The term "collective bargaining" refers to a process in which employers and employees (or their representatives, like trade unions, etc.) come together and voluntarily negotiate working conditions. Typically, these discussions come up at the end of a contractual period and focus on things like wages, work hours, benefits, safety of the workplace, overtime procedures, grievance and mediation procedures, and the level at which owners and management will allow workers to participate in the operation and strategic mission of the company.

In order for there to be collective bargarining, however, there needed to be a philosophy of labor; the term itself was first used in 1891 but the concept of unions and labor vs. management and owners, of course, harkens back to Karl Marx and even labor issues prior. Collective bargaining in the contemporary, especially post World War II world is quite different than the union vs. management mentality that so occupied the history of labor in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Part 2 -- Identify and discuss three laws that support collective bargaining.

Law 1 -- The Railway Labor Act (1926) -- This act was passed to govern labor relations for the railroad and airline industries; but was ammended in 1934, 1936, and 1951 to substitute bargaining, arbitrtation and mediation for strikes as a way to reduce and resolve labor issues. In part, this was in response to the 1922 national railroad strike that crimplled the nation, reduced transportation, and showed Congress that something needed to be put in place with more workforce without frightening companies about increased labor strikes.

Law 3 -- The Fair Labor Standards Act -- (1938) -- Sometimes known as the Wages and Hours Bill, this is a federal statute. The FLSA established a few new wage issues that were important in helping the nation recover from the Great Depression. It guaranteed time and a half for overtime in certain jobs; prohinited employment of minors in oppressive child labor, and helped establish precedent for the 40-hour work week. It has been amended a number of times to keep pace with technology, labor supply and demand, and cultural issues.

For instance, decertification petitions must be signed by no fewer than 30% of employees, must be filed when a contract is NOT in effect or agreed upon window, and must also be free of any coercive influences from management. Once the petition and preliminary work is done, a formal document must be filed with National Labor Relations Board, which will schedule a decertifying election, typically within 60 days. During that time period, management and labor may campaign. Once the election is held, the NLRB will decertify the union if a simple majority, 50.1%, votes against the union.
