Not all human resource specialists will have to navigate situations with unions and management, but all human resource professionals need to think legally. By studying a seminal case between management and the union, National Labor Relations Board v. General Motors Corp., 1963, you will gain background knowledge about the agency model of union membership and what the court defines as unfair labor practices.
The habit of mind that you develop by studying and analyzing this case will serve you as you think about the legal ramifications of negotiations with employees and management on a wide range of issues.
Your company is reviewing its approach to the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). Your human resources team has been tasked with giving a presentation about the history of the NLRA that is appropriate for leaders as well as other human resource specialists in order to prepare them for ongoing discussions about the issues presented by NLRA for your company.
You are a human resource specialist who has been tasked to present the key points from this case to various small groups of company leaders and other human resource specialists so that they have the background to discuss how the NLRA could impact your business.
Based on key guidelines from the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), analyze National Labor Relations Board v. General Motors Corp., 1963. Prepare a 4–6-slide PowerPoint presentation explaining and analyzing key elements of the case.
