One of the key goals of a labor union is to gain official recognition so that it is entitled to conduct collective bargaining on behalf of its members in a particular bargaining unit. This course examines the unionization process laid out by the National Labor Relations Act. Labor regulations also identify unfair labor practices by employers, such as activities that inhibit employees' effort to unionize, or inhibit their employment rights and conditions of work.
