Aviation Labor Relations
This course focuses on an investigation of labor-management relations in the aviation industry. Examined are the history of unionism, structure of unions, legal environment, and the Railway Labor Act, collective bargaining, public sector relationships, grievance procedures, and conflict resolution.

This course is designed to provide an introduction to labor-management relations and equip students to evaluate contemporary aviation labor issues.
