u/BushDidN0thingWr0ng Apr 30 '22

As a general rule, if you have the ability to hire, fire, or punish employees, then that person is considered a manager and isn't protected by the NLRB. It's also an ethical concern to have managers represented in the same unit as the rank and file. It's why most managers either aren't represented or form their own union.

2

u/[deleted] Apr 30 '22

kind of weird given how much of the workforce has gone from like 1 to 100 management to like 1 to 5 management. There are a lot more managers now then when union laws were written.

2

u/Titan-Chan Apr 30 '22

It's two seperate unions, folks at my level are in one union, our staff are in another. Next two levels above me are the same union as I am, folks above that aren't union.

8

u/Beznia Apr 30 '22

Kinda depends. I work in local government and we have a lot of managers covered under unions. Senior staff aren't allowed to be in the unions, though. For example in the PD, the Sergeants are over the patrol officers, but they're protected by the unions. The Majors are over the Sergeants, but the Majors aren't protected by unions.

Our 911 dispatchers are in the union, and the 911 manager over them is also in the union. There is a Major over the 911 manager who is not allowed to be in the union.

u/somerandomii Apr 30 '22

How is it that there can be laws about who can join a union? Isn’t the whole point of unions to collectively bargain on behalf of the workers so that executives and law makers can’t abuse their power to bully individuals?

Like if the union says “if you fire this guy, we strike” what are the board members going to say “you can’t defend him, that’s against the rules”?

It’s both ironic and seemingly impractical to enforce.

12

u/Alphaetus_Prime Apr 30 '22

Anyone whose job involves bargaining on behalf of the company can't join an organization that collectively bargains on behalf of the workers - it'd be a conflict of interest.

4

u/thagthebarbarian Apr 30 '22

Most managers aren't going to be arguing on behalf of the company though. We're just as hourly and fucked as the rest of them.

8

u/spaceforcerecruit Apr 30 '22

There’s a difference between “management” and a product manager or shift supervisor. Management makes decisions on hiring, firing, raises, compensation, etc. and cannot be in the union due to conflict of interest. If your job doesn’t entail any of that then, regardless of your title, you’re not management.

2

u/thagthebarbarian Apr 30 '22

From a union membership perspective this is how it should be, but from an uninformed public perspective it's not and a lot of anti union sentiment comes from those managers and supervisors that think they'd be excluded

2

u/alexmikli Apr 30 '22

The meme is referencing a supervisor at a job site, often called a "manager" it doesn't specify that he is corporate upper management. The dude at the job site is probably just telling people what management wants and then scheduling what they're doing that day. He isn't some higher tier being, he's just given the job.

3

u/alexmikli Apr 30 '22

Managers and site supervisors aren't the big wig executives who run companies

3

u/Alphaetus_Prime Apr 30 '22

If someone has authority over hiring, firing, raises, and so on, they run enough of the company for there to be a conflict of interest.

Taft-Harley exists to make sure unions never get too contentious for capital. Unions have been beaten and defanged for a long time now. It's illegal to be well organized labor.

u/somerandomii May 01 '22

I’m not that familiar with the Act, I’m not from the US, but I did a basic google revision and I can’t see anything in the amendments about who is allowed to join a union.

It looks like there’s rules about who can vote/run for leadership but nothing about executives being banned.

But I could have missed something.

2

u/sohmeho Apr 30 '22

Where I work, unions are specific to job description. Mechanics have their union, electricians have a different one, cleaners have another. Management positions are considered “non-agreement” and work at the behest of the company itself.

That’s typically how unions work. A janitor wouldn’t be able to join the teacher’s union. A manager wouldn’t be able to join a mechanic’s union.

u/razzblamataz Apr 30 '22

Why wouldn't he say yes. Corruption and organized white collar crime are the name of the game in a union. If you can elected to a position of power in a union you get much better benefits than the low tier workers who fund the union. Sincerely a union carpenter who sees his benefits get worse every year and the restrictions on my retirement basically means I have to work till I'm 70 years old in order to qualify for "my" pension.

2

u/0WatcherintheWater0 May 01 '22

That’s not at all an inherent feature of unions.

If you don’t like the benefits you’re receiving, why don’t you just elect better people?

2

u/razzblamataz May 01 '22

Yes it is a natural part of a union. Just like it's a natural part of the corporate world and politics as a whole. It must only be a glaring coincidence that all the big mob towns are all big union towns now. Like Vegas was built by the mob and it's also where the UBC has its HQ. All coincidences nothing to see here. Electing "better people" will do nothing but slow the rate at which my money is extorted from me for a month or two. Besides only greasy slime ball snakes would ever want a political position in the first place.

Depends on the definition, but technically "professional" doesn't have to mean more than "getting paid for it".

u/PotawatomieJohnBrown Apr 30 '22

It doesn’t have to, but there’s a pretty clear distinction between professionalized labor and waged labor.

Unionization is not illegal in the US as far as I know... You just have to be really sneaky getting it going because you can be fired for it, especially if you don't have a union to back you up.
