Module 3 - Case

ORGANIZED LABOR

Assignment Overview

In this Case Assignment we will look at actual labor contracts to experience the content and detail involved.

The emphasis is on how to represent information in table form and to draw your own conclusions from the data presented.

Case Assignment

Select two labor contracts, each representing a different industry group. Discuss (in your own words):

  • How the two contract sections on employee grievance handlingdiffer and are the same (paying close attention to the definition of “grievance”; grievance processing steps, mediation and/or arbitration and other important topics in the clause).
  • Compare and contrast their employee discipline/dischargeclauses.
  • Summarize by bringing in your module readings and/or library research to discuss the impact grievance handling might have on employee relations.

Include at least 3 library sources to help strengthen your discussion.
