After reviewing this week’s resources, you will need to compose a discussion board post of at least 250 words that addresses the guiding questions listed. Remember that your post should not simply be quick answers to each of the questions. In other words, review each question, reflect on the answers, and compose a singular response that shows your understanding of this material. In fact, you may not use all of the questions in your response, but you should show a full comprehension of the material.

Guiding Questions:

  1. Provide a historical explanation of labor unions, include an explanation of the role of Human Resources in the collective bargaining process and labor union processes after a labor contract is signed.
  2. What impacts have labor unions have on the current work environment?
  3. Is there a racial, social class, and/or gender privilege associated with labor unions? Explain.
  4. Based on this response, how then are labor unions viewed and approached?
