The Federal Government has determined that workers have the right to organize and bargain collectively and that it is in the best interest of commerce for employers to accept collective bargaining when workers determine that they want it.
The government has also determined that the inequality of bargaining power between unorganized workers and powerful employers tends to cause depression and low wages. Therefore, the government has protected these rights by the Taft-Hartley Act and the National Labor Relations Act.
Workers have the right to elect a Union or organize their own union to represent them. Employers cannot legally dismiss a worker for looking into joining a union, for promoting union membership or for belonging to a union.
