Union Organization and Labor Relations: Pennsylvania
Federal law and guidance on this subject should be reviewed together with this section.
Author: James S. Urban, Jones Day
- For most private sector employers in Pennsylvania, labor union organizing and labor relations generally is governed exclusively by the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). See Right to Organize and Bargain Collectively.
- However, where the NLRA has no jurisdiction, such as with respect to smaller employers, the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Act may apply. See Right to Organize and Bargain Collectively.
- Pennsylvania is not a "right to work" state. See Right to Work.
