Course Overview: This course deals with labor law in the private sector. Labor Law is defined as the Federal regulation of private sector disputes between employers and groups of its employees (usually unions) and of the relationship between unions and their members. Traditionally the course surveys the establishment of a collective bargaining relationship between employers and unions, the subsequent negotiation of a collective bargaining agreement resulting from that relationship, the administration of that agreement through its grievance-arbitration provisions, and the economic weapons used by parties to various kinds of labor conflicts. Increasingly, labor law concerns itself with protected concerted activity not involving a union, the relationship between labor law and immigration law, the relationship between a union and its members, and the use by unions of non-traditional weapons to achieve their objectives. We will consider as many of these issues as time permits.
