THE NLRB’S UNFAIR LABOR PRACTICE SETTLEMENT PROGRAM: AN EMPIRICAL ANALYSIS OF PARTICIPANT SATISFACTION
Lamont Stallworth, Arup Varma and John T. Delaney
For more than a century, unions and employers in the United States have had a stormy relationship. The National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) created the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in part to stabilize labor-management relations by facilitating the collective bargaining process between unions and employers. The NLRA’s broad, remedial purpose, as stated in Section 1, is to eliminate imbalances in bargaining power and ensure that the process by which such agreements are reached are fair and equitable. However, over the years, attempts to solve these labor-management disputes have remained emotional and bitterly contested.
