The Labor-Management Relations Act (LMRA) (1947)


Also called the Taft-Hartley Act, this is the first national legislation that placed controls on unions. It prohibits unfair labor practices by unions and outlaws closed shops, where union membership is required in order to get and keep a job. Employers may not form
closed-shop agreements with unions. It requires both parties to bargain in good faith and covers nonmanagement employees in private industry who are not covered by the Railway Labor Act. For more information, see 29 U.S.C. Sec.141, www.casefilemethod.com/Statuters/LMRA.pdf.
