HRA596 Strategic Issues in Human Resources
Module 7 Report
Visit the websites for either the AFL-CIO (http://www.aflcio.org) or the Teamsters union (http://www.teamster.org ) AND the website for the National Labor Relations Board (http://www.nlrb.gov). Compare and contrast what information is emphasized and the way information is presented on the labor organization site vs. the government site. What are the main issues that the union appears to be pursuing? Do these issues appear well-matched to the needs of the workforce? Finally, what do you think union leaders get from the NLRB site? What about employers? (These questions are roughly based on Exercises 4 & 5, p. 419 of the textbook)
Write a 2-4 page report addressing the above. Remember, your paper should begin with an executive summary.
Post your Executive Summary on the Discussion Board and include your report as an attachment no later than Thursday 11:59 PM EST/EDT. Also, submit your paper to the Assignment box. See the Discussion page for further information.
