replaces Collective Bargaining (LEL100)
Professor Margaret Leibowitz
Collective bargaining is the process by which unions and employers determine many of the terms and conditions of employment governing their workplace and attempt to negotiate resolutions of disputes that may arise. The bargaining parties commonly incorporate dispute resolution procedures into their collective bargaining process, most prominently grievance procedures culminating in final and binding arbitration. This course examines the legal and theoretical framework governing collective bargaining and labor dispute resolution, and incorporates simulation exercises to assist students in acquiring the specialized skills associated with law practice in this field.
Prerequisite: Labor Relations Law (LEL130). Students who have previously taken Collective Bargaining (LEL100) or Labor Arbitration may not enroll for this course.
