Not too easy. Not too difficult.
As a member of the workforce or future member taking this course will allow you to have a better understanding of the relationship between employees and employer. You will look at it from an historical perspective from the late 1800's to our present day. You will now be able to understand the different terms that resonate today such as labor cost and collective bargaining.
The importance of Unions are they still needed today why or why not? This was one of our weekly assignments that led to a healthy debate. Unions set the standard for compensation, benefits, health care, safety procedures, and etc. It still resonates today. Unions have diminished over the years with all of the federal protection, laws, and policy that protect employees. Understanding the collective bargaining process was also a major highlight. We got to look at both sides from a management and employee perspective.
