What Does The Labor Management Relations Act (LMRA) Govern?
Four major historical statutes make up what is now known as the Labor Management Relations Act (LMRA). The cornerstone of the LMRA provides that protected employees shall have the right to form and join unions and bargain collectively. Such employees can engage in concerted activities for their mutual aid or protection. Employees shall also have the right to refrain from unions unless already represented by a union and subject to a union shop provision. The LMRA further provides which actions or inactions will constitute an unfair labor practice by employer and union. The LMRA establishes the process of elections (conducted by the National Labor Relations Board, NLRB), to determine the desires of the employees for representation, and outlines the NLRB`s powers.
