A labor union is an organization of workers which negotiates labor contracts with employers through its leadership. Unions Law Lawyers can negotiate wages, work rules, complaints, hiring, firing and promotion rules, benefits, safety at the workplace and other policies. These organizations include individual workers, past workers, professionals or the unemployed. Union laws are established for the purpose of maintaining good conditions of employment.
A union contract is exclusive to the employer, and an employer is generally not permitted to hire another labor union even if he/she is unhappy with the performance of the current labor union.
