Employer Lobbying & Collective Bargaining

Posted by Moderator MT Coalition on October 30, 2017 at 10:00 PM Comments comments (9)

Lack of access to collective bargaining poses a difficulty in improving worker conditions in MTSOs.  There are often no means to communicate with coworkers, and finding unions can be difficult.

What are your ideas in forming a collective bargaining unit or mechanism for workers in MTSOs? 

Some suggestions have included:

         1. Finding or forming a collective bargaining unit.

2.  Using the MT Coalition to organize, coordinate with other MT/E groups to conference and strategize ways to lobby their organizations.  This could include drafting letters with requested working condition changes, and launching a scheduled CEO Email or management dialogue conference day, etc. 

3.  Forming a worker cooperative MTSO (as addressed in the forum on cooperatives).

What are your thoughts on the above, or other ideas and suggestions related to employer lobbying and collective bargaining?  

Do you have or know others who have expertise and/or resources in collective bargaining that you would volunteer or recommend?
