Seals Denise Human Resource Management MBAC6103OL Dr. Drivers December 4, 2009 Case 95 Unit Organizing at SGA Industries 1. What was the impetus for the union organizing efforts at SGA Industries? There were three impetus forces that cause the union organizing efforts at SGA Industries: 1. 2. 3. Job Security - The growing foreign competition and imports, which caused a chain reaction, decline in sales which led to 1,500 employees being laid off. Reduction in pay and cut in perks for the workers. Technology advances, more work with no pay increase 2. Discuss SGAs strategy in managing the representation campaign. SGAs strategy was to face the unions campaign implications head on and dispute the allegations they were making. SGA appealed to the workers by having face to face meetings with important figure heads within the community, such as community, business and religious leaders to influence the workers views about the union. They began to show anti-union films doing work hours and sent letters to the employees homes to team encourage spirit and casting out the union. SGAs president and owner made frequent visits to plants to personal contact with the workers and to listen the workers concerns. SGA took a more personal approach, meeting and greeting with their employees showing they care and letting the workers know what it is going to take to keep them competitive with the foreign market. 3. Discuss any potential unfair labor practice charges SGA management might face as a result of their campaign strategy. As a result in the SGA management campaign strategy, under the National Labor Relations Act, some of the potential unfair labor practices charges would be: (1) Interfering with, restraining or coercing employees in their rights under Section 7(Section 7 is Rights of employees). SGA did this by: 1. 2. 3. Showing anti-union films during work hours. Anti-union letters within the weekly employee newsletter Making statements of closing the facility regardless if the union take over if found the company cannot operate competitively.
