Summary:

  • For most private sector employers in Utah, 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, state law can apply. See Right to Organize and Bargain Collectively.
  • States can also decide for themselves whether they want to be a "right to work" state. Utah has one of the nation's strongest "right to work" statutes. See Right to Work.
