Determine if a Term or Condition of Employment Is Subject to Collective Bargaining

When to Use This Workflow

Use the Determine if a Term or Condition of Employment Is Subject to Collective Bargaining workflow to determine whether a term or condition of employment must be bargained over with a union. An employer whose employees are represented by a union has an obligation under the National Labor Relations Act to bargain in good faith over the terms and conditions of employment. The issue of whether a particular term or condition of employment must be bargained arises when:

  • An employer and a union are bargaining an initial contract;
  • An expiring collective bargaining agreement is being renegotiated; and
  • A change to a term or condition of employment is proposed during the life of a contract.

This workflow walks an employer through the process of evaluating whether a term or condition of employment is subject to collective bargaining.
