In this Case Assignment we will look at actual labor contracts to experience the content and detail involved.
Go to the following source:
United States Department of Labor, Office of Labor-Management Standards, Collective Bargaining Agreements. Retrieved from https://www.dol.gov/olms/regs/compliance/cba/index.htm
Select two labor contracts, each representing a different industry group. Discuss (in your own words):
How the two contract sections on employee grievance handling differ and are the same (paying close attention to the definition of “grievance”; grievance processing steps, mediation and/or arbitration and other important topics in the clause).
Compare and contrast their employee discipline/discharge clauses.
Summarize by bringing in your module readings and/or library research to discuss the impact grievance handling might have on employee relations.
Bring in at least 3 library sources to help strengthen your discussion.
Please upload your paper by the module due date. Paper length: 4–5 pages, not counting cover and reference pages.
