Why Employers Resist Unions

3 ratings | 138 views
Some employers would rather not have to negotiate with unions because they affect how employees and workplaces are managed. Unions are criticized for creating inefficiencies at work that cause waste and poor performance. Union workers frequently receive higher compensation than nonunion workers, but on the flipside, higher pay and benefits might be related to longer job tenure and better job performance, if union leadership is aligned with company goals. Some employers seek to build a cooperative relationship with labor unions, while others choose an aggressive, adversarial approach. However, there are numerous strategies that can be employed to prevent unionization from occurring in the first place. To remain union free, companies must be proactive and develop good employment practices; earn employee trust; encourage employee feedback; offer fair, competitive compensation; and build supportive supervisory relationships with workers. Both HR professionals and operating managers must be attentive and responsive to employees. Primary responsibility for dealing with labor unions may fall to HR or line managers depending on the organization’s philosophy and history.
