The film offers insight into what oftentimes occurs after a union becomes certified by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) as the exclusive bargaining representative for certain specified non-exempt employees.
Union Negotiations presents a series of meetings between a company and the union negotiators that take place over many months. The conference table setting, and the back and forth dialogue between the two parties, enlightens employees to the reality of actual negotiations.
Even strong union supporters get a wake-up call. During the course of this film, the frustration of a new union steward is obvious as he discovers union promises are hollow and empty, and that his wages, benefits, and work rules are all subject to the negotiation process. Often the results of this negotiation process are a far cry from what they were promised by the union.
