This course will focus on the law governing relations between employers and workers acting collectively through unions. Topics include employee and employer rights of freedom of speech and association in connection with union organizing, the processes of negotiation and dispute resolution used to establish wages and working conditions, and the various forms of litigation, lobbying, and alternative dispute resolution, including arbitration, that are used to enforce collective bargaining agreements and other statutory labor rights. We discuss governance and finance of labor organizations and the current controversy over public sector unions. This course does not overlap in coverage with Employment Law (individual employee rights) or Employment Discrimination (status-based discrimination).
