The Interplay Of Civil Service And Collective Bargaining Law In Public Sector Employee Discipline Cases, Ann C. Hodges Dec 1990

The Interplay Of Civil Service And Collective Bargaining Law In Public Sector Employee Discipline Cases, Ann C. Hodges

Law Faculty Publications

This article undertakes such a review with respect to one aspect of the potential conflict between merit systems and collective bargaining- employee discipline and the appeal of discipline decisions. Protection from arbitrary or unjust discipline is a primary motivation for employee unionization. As a result, achieving protection from unjust disciplinary action becomes a fundamental goal of unions in collective bargaining. Public sector unions in the United States are particularly interested in "discipline, grievance procedures and organizational due process"....

Section IV of this article reviews the approaches of the various states that have addressed the issue, analyzing them in light of ...


More Lessons From Japan: End Industrywide Collective Bargaining?, Robert H. Lande, Richard O. Zerbe Jr. Sep 1990

More Lessons From Japan: End Industrywide Collective Bargaining?, Robert H. Lande, Richard O. Zerbe Jr.

All Faculty Scholarship

The number of books and articles discussing Japanese management techniques with an eye to transplanting them to the United States is staggering. Americans understandably are impressed by Japanese efficiency and like to think the adoption of some of their techniques will aid our own industries. Often these proposals seem fanciful and fail to recognize the many differences between the two countries, their economic systems and cultures.


Afterword To Chicago-Kent Law Review, Theodore J. St. Antoine Jan 1990

Afterword To Chicago-Kent Law Review, Theodore J. St. Antoine

Articles

A unifying theme of this Symposium is as old and enduring as the common law: when and how can a well-established, successful adjudicative institution be adapted to meet the demands of new and substantially different situations? There have been splendid triumphs of transference, such as Lord Mansfield's appropriation of the law merchant in the eighteenth century as a major building block of modem commercial law. There have also been embarrassing failures, like the abortive effort to transport American labor law concepts en masse into the alien British environment of the early 1970s. The common question confronting the participants in ...


Union Security Agreements Under The National Labor Relations Act: The Statute, The Constitution, And The Court's Opinion In Beck, Kenneth G. Dau-Schmidt Jan 1990

Union Security Agreements Under The National Labor Relations Act: The Statute, The Constitution, And The Court's Opinion In Beck, Kenneth G. Dau-Schmidt

Articles by Maurer Faculty

The Supreme Court's recent decision in Communications Workers of America v. Beck interpreted section 8(a)(3) of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) to prohibit the observance of agency shop agreements. By interpreting the statute in this way, the Court avoided the question of whether union security agreements under the NLRA are subject to constitutional scrutiny. The Court's determination that section 8(a)(3) does not allow agency shop agreements was an important decision affecting the enforceability of union security agreements in the vast majority of private sector bargaining agreements.

In this Article, Professor Dau-Schmidt criticizes the ...


The Steelworkers Trilogy In The Public Sector, Ann C. Hodges Jan 1990

The Steelworkers Trilogy In The Public Sector, Ann C. Hodges

Law Faculty Publications

This article will examine the role of the Trilogy principles, including the public policy exception, in judicial enforcement of arbitration agreements in the public sector. First the article will review the applicable law in the private sector regarding judicial arbitration enforcement. Then, the article will discuss the role of the courts in public sector arbitration, concluding that while courts frequently pay lip service to the Trilogy principles, in reality they often fail to apply them. Finally, the article will analyze the arguments for and against application of the deferential Trilogy standards in the public sector in light of the distinctive ...
