Keiser University Week 4 Discussion
Can you do a response to this post please?National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency that was created by the U.S. Congress in 1935 to administer the National Labor Relations Act which was called the Wagner Act. What I’ve learned is that NLRB has three functions. The first function is if appropriate bargaining unit of employees exists for collective bargaining. Second function is “to determine by secret ballot elections whether the employees in a business or industry wish to be represented by labour unions” (NLRB, 2021). Last function is to prevent unfair labor practices by employers and unions. What’s interesting and also surprising to me is that in 1935 they gave employees right to form and join unions. “Employees was obligated to bargain with unions that was selected by majority of the employees in an appropriate bargaining unit” (NLRB, 2021). The important part for me is employers can no longer discriminate against others who participate in union or any other collective activities.
