Abstract

COLLECTIVE BARGAINING IN THE USA. FROM THE WAGNER ACT TO THE PRESENT. — Summary. The essay looks at the U.S. legislative framework on collective bargaining since its introduction with the Wagner Act in 1935. Specifically, it analyses the rules for union recognition in the workplace and for collective bargaining (majority rule and exclusive representation, duty to bargain in good faith) and for managing industrial strike action (arbitration and peace clause): using a historical-critical approach and discussing several leading cases, the paper presents clear evidence of a decentralized bargaining pattern and a privatized system of labour justice in the U.S.A. To conclude, it examines current trade unions strategies alternative to the model designed by the Wagner Act (i.e., worker centers), describing the latest contract renewal between UAW and FCA for the Chrysler plants in the U.S.A. as an example case.
