Review the CBA provided in the resources section between the Trustees of Columbia University and Local 2110 International Union of Technical, Office, and Professional Workers.
Describe how this is similar to a “contract” between management and labor. Do you believe it is written at the correct level of detail (e.g., is it too vague and therefore needing more specific details, or is it broad enough for logical interpretation)? Provide several specific examples.
Do you believe this document adds value to a workplace, or does it create restrictions? Please explain.
Develop a flow chart or step-by-step list of the key steps employees must take to form unions. Explain how the union-organizing process works differently in the public sector compared to the private sector. Describe the roles of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) compared to the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA).
Summarize who can join a union and who is excluded; how unions are formed (referencing your flow chart/step-by-step guide above); and why they are formed (citing three or more statistical reasons).
