The aim of this representativeness study is to identify the respective national and supranational actors (i.e. trade unions and employer organisations) in the field of industrial relations in the civil aviation industry in Ireland. In order to determine their relative importance in the sector’s industrial relations, this study will, in particular, focus on their representational quality as well as on their role in collective bargaining. As Ireland is an island nation, the civil aviation industry is the most vital element in Ireland’s transport and communications infrastructure, both in respect of ...
Through the turbulent years of 1948 - 1991 trade unions played an important part in developing political and economic resistance, and eventually were one of the driving forces in realising the transition to an inclusive democratic government. Today trade unions are still an important force in South Africa , with 3.1 million members representing 25% of the formal work force. 1 The Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) is the largest of the three major trade union centres, with a membership of 1.8 million, and is part of the Tripartite alliance with the ruling African National Congress (ANC) and the South African ...
cases where federal law not applicable allow picketing
From this review of the cases it is clear that, as to labor disputes to which federal law is in no way applicable, picketing to compel an employer to sign a closed shop agreement is picketing for a lawful purpose even when none of the employees are union members. We are now told, however, that these cases have been superseded, in many respects by later law both statutory and decisional, and that to engage in the task of distinguishing and discussing them now would be a work of supererogation. It is true that the McKay case has been superseded on its precise facts by the Jurisdictional Strike Act, if the employees’ ... market research, surveys and trends Amendment 47 and the "Freedom of Choice"
Diana Hsieh. This has generated some discussion regarding the merits of the proposal, so here I further detail my case against it. The problem with Amendment 47 is that it interferes with the freedom of contract. That this interferes with the employee's "freedom to choose" is irrelevant. For instance, an employee does not have the "freedom to choose" to gab on the phone with friends while at work, create a painting when the job requires customer service, etc. Beyond the context of individual rights, the "freedom to choose" is either meaningless or in direct violation of individual rights.

CEO Puts East West's Name on Map
East West Bank’s acquisition of a failed Seattle-area competitor three weeks ago cemented the Pasadena institution’s new standing as Southern California’s largest commercial bank. Yet East West would not be where it is today if not for a critical turn two years ago. Dominic Ng, who took the helm of the bank in 1992 amid the savings and loan crisis, had an uneasy feeling about the weakening housing market in spring 2008. “I saw enough signs out there in the market that this crisis can potentially match what happened in the early ’90s – and it turned out to be much worse, right?” recalled Ng, 51, during a recent interview in his ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Congress Investigates the 1934 San Francisco Strike
The nationwide labor upsurge of 1934 reached its peak in San Francisco. On May 9, 1934, leaders of the International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) called a strike of all West Coast dockworkers, demanding a wage scale, a “closed shop” (union membership as a requirement of employment), and union-administered hiring halls. A few days later seamen and teamsters joined the strike, effectively stopping all shipping from San Diego to Seattle. Enraged employers, backed by a sympathetic mayor and police chief, used every means available to open the waterfront and protect strikebreakers, whom they imported in large ...

WikiAnswers - What is the difference between Closed shop and union ...
A closed shop is a shop in which persons are required to join a particular union as a precondition to employment and to remain union members for the duration of their employment. Among the workers' rights legalized by the NLRA was the right to enter into a "closed shop" agreement. It differs from a union shop, in which all workers, once employed, must become union members within a specified period of time as a condition of their continued employment. Closed shop agreements ensured that only union members who were bound by internal union rules, including those enforcing worker solidarity during strikes, were hired.
