Gd ND module 16 - Increased Rights for Labor

  1. 1. Increased Rights For Labor
  2. 2. We have been talking about the demands of workers had for some time. If you recall, their main concerns were that they wanted higher pay, shorter hours, and safer working conditions. The problem was that the factory owners would not bargain with the workers. Part of The New Deal was a plan called The National Labor Relations Act that would protect the rights of workers to try to get better conditions. It forced companies to bargain with their employees.
  3. 3. The National Labor Relations Act or Wagner Act was made in 1935 and did the following: 1. Protected the rights of most workers in non-government jobs to organize labor unions, 2. Required business owners to bargain (engage in give and take bargaining) with the workers unions, and 3. Allowed workers to take part in strikes and other actions in support of their demands. (They could no longer be FIRED for doing it!!!)
  4. 4. The Wagner Act started a federal agency, the National Labor Relations Board, with the power to investigate and decide unfair labor practice actions by companies.
  5. 5. The Wagner Act started a federal agency, the National Labor Relations Board, with the power to investigate and decide unfair labor practice actions by companies.
