The Successor Employer's Obligation to Bargain: Current Problems in the Presumption of a Union's Majority Status
labor law, collective bargaining, labor policy
This Note examines federal labor policy as it relates to successor employers' duty to negotiate with the labor union of the previous employer. Specifically, this Note analyzes the impact that the successor employers' right to refuse to negotiate if it has a "good faith doubt" that the union retains its majority status has on employee's freedom of choice. Finally, it examines national labor policy and concludes that the policy of the National Labor Relations Board unduly "sacrifices the determination of actual employee free choice."
