CB205  Case Analysis First National Bank Organizing Case 1. Management has been most effective at laying a foundation to prevail in the NLRB  election because of their professionalism, loyalty, and constructive actions. The First  National Bank is already viewed as a “prestigious place to work” that has a “pleasant  and clean atmosphere” with absurdly high job security in a relatively unsatisfying and  unpredictable local job market. The bank already has the upper hand as being one of  the best employers in town. Further developing and establishing the hospital-medical  plan was their biggest advantage point. Establishing the plan showed the employees  that they not only listen to their demands/concerns but they take immediate action to  accommodate and satisfy them. It shows that they are responsible and dedicated to  work collectively with their employees to maintain job satisfaction and a healthy  labor/management relationship. The fact that the union had to withdraw their ULP  charge because management had already been working on a health-care program  before any Union activity began not only solved the biggest issue for why employees  wanted a Union in the first place but showed the employees they are able to achieve  employment changes without union representation. Throughout the entire case First  National Bank management was very professional, informative, and loyal to its

employees. The fact that the question and answer session during the meeting was very  informative yet lacked any attempts of coercion strengthened managements relationship  with its workers furthering trust and loyalty. The company continued to maintain a  positive image to the employees when they did not discharge or discipline any of the  workers who were aiding/supporting the attempt to unionize. The company kept its  morals even in times of tension and conflict.  2. For the last 30 days the union organizing campaign should work as hard as they can to  increase overall union awareness. The union should increase the size of their  organizing committee and have employee representatives that cover all races, ages,  religions, and sex. Having a larger and more diverse committee enables the union to  reach out and/or influence to more employees. It is necessary to not spend all their time
