This week’s content discussed the nature of employer opposition to unions, and the union negotiating environment. Consider and comment on the following questions:
1. Considering the current rules regarding permissible conduct by unions to promote themselves and permissible conduct by employers to fight union encroachment, which side do you think the rules tend to favor and why? Do you think such favoritism is deliberate in the legislative design? Why or why not?
2. Do you think employers in certain industries might be more resistant to unionization than in others? Why or why not?
