Labor union expresses concern over Amazon coming to New York

New York workers who are seeking good jobs at competitive wages might think that large, prominent companies coming to the city is a good thing. Often, it is. However, before becoming too excited over the prospect of a healthy job market and the benefits it brings, unions are apt to express concern over how these companies conduct themselves. It is frequently on the backs of workers with controversy in its wake. For workers, having the backing of a labor union is a critical aspect of ensuring these companies do not attempt to take advantage of them, using their enthusiasm against them. Union representation is not the only thing necessary to help workers. The support of a law firm that specializes in union matters is also key.

In New York, there are so many kinds of workers and jobs that it can become confusing as to whether they have the right to join a labor union and negotiate for a better collective bargaining agreement or nor. Workers who are functioning as employees while they focus on other endeavors are not at the mercy of their employer and expected to be satisfied with whatever terms of employment and employee benefits the employer chooses to give them. Labor law grants rights to employees and they should be prepared to unionize or join a current union to maximize their benefits and compensation. A law firm that specializes in unions is critical to this.

Understanding labor law and economic strikers

News stories about workers having a strike are everywhere in New York and across the U.S. Strikes are a critical negotiating tool when dealing with complex collective bargaining issues. For those who are confronted with the need to stage a walkout and seek better pay, benefits and more, it is important to understand what the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) says about the legality of organizing a strike. As with any issue related to labor law, having help from a law firm that specializes in helping unions is key.

New Yorkers who are in a union or is seeking to join one should keep an eye on how employers treat employees during these collective bargaining sessions. Not only can it impact daily lives -- especially if it is a prominent company -- but it can provide a roadmap as to how labor relations should be handled. Union members or prospective union members should keep track of these situations and, of course, have legal assistance with their own case.

What are employers not allowed to do regarding a labor union?

New York unions and their employers can engage in disputes over many issues. Even in circumstances where there is a solid relationship, it can quickly degenerate into a contentious back and forth if there are disagreements from either perspective. This is especially true when it comes to employers trying to use coercive tactics with employees. Some employers might try to influence the labor union in this way. Union members must be cognizant of what the law says about such acts and respond accordingly. Having legal assistance from a qualified union law firm can be useful in this or any other labor law case.
