The National Labor Relations Act of 1935 also known as the Wagner Act was a New Deal reform passed by President Franklin Roosevelt. It is arguably the most important piece of legislation to date protecting workers’ and unions’ rights (Wagner Act, 2020). It encouraged the formation of unions and the use of collective bargaining. It provided a means of resolving disputes over union representation and protected workers for unfair labor practices.
The Taft-Hartley Act of 1947 was a major revision of the National Labor Relations Act (Wagner Act) and it defined unfair union practices including prohibiting unions from charging excessive dues or initiation fees, and from “featherbedding,” or causing an employer to pay for work not performed (Wagner, 2020). It outlined the rules for dealing with strikes of major economic impact and broadened employers’ options for dealing with unions.
The Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959 also known as the Landrum-Griffin Act came about due to the intense Congressional scrutiny for corruption, racketeering, and other misconduct of the labor movement. Congress felt that further reforms were needed to address gaps in both the Wagner Act and the Taft-Harley Act. President Dwight Eisenhower signed the law that amended Taft-Hartley and the act deals with the internal affairs of labor unions. The act required unions to have a Bill of Rights for its members, rules for electing union officials and safeguards to help make unions financially sound. This act also requires that unions file annual financial reports.
If I were a Human Resources Manager and was asked to create a presentation on this topic, I feel I would only need 4 slides if I were only covering the three acts.
