Module 3 – Case
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…
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.
Demonstrate critical thinking and analysis of the relevant issues and HRM actions, drawing on your background reading and research.
Information Literacy: Evaluate resources and select only library/web-based resources that provide reliable, substantiated information.
Give authors credit for their work. Cite sources of borrowed information in the body of your text as footnotes or numbered end notes, or use APA style of referencing.
Prepare a paper that is professionally presented (including a cover page, a list of references, headings/subheadings, and a strong introduction and conclusion). Proofread carefully for grammar, spelling, and word-usage errors.
