    Within your organization, there has been talk about potentially forming a union. However, many are not sure of the need or really what the term "unionizing" is all about. Your director has requested for you to hold a meeting for all staff that reviews the historical evolution of labor unions within the United States. Your presentation will be structured to inform and explain the union movement and to address both the benefits and issues with a union shop. The audience will be staff members and line or production employees so you will need to be neutral and remain unbiased for or against a union.

    Develop a PowerPoint presentation in which you analyze the rationale for, and the evolution of, unions in America, including the evolution of labor laws to coincide with union progress. If possible, supporting the viewpoint with local data.

    Support your presentation with at least five (5) scholarly resources.

    Length: 12-15 slides. Your presentation MUST include notes containing 150-200 words per slide (this is your script).

    Using current APA Formatting and style.

    Within your organization, there has been talk about potentially forming a union. However, many are not sure of the need or really what the term "unionizing" is all about. Your director has requested for you to hold a meeting for all staff that reviews the historical evolution of labor unions within the United States. Your presentation will be structured to inform and explain the union movement and to address both the benefits and issues with a union shop. The audience will be staff members and line or production employees so you will need to be neutral and remain unbiased for or against a union.

    I will provide the information that (you) can put in your slides. In reference to the benefits associated with joining a union shop as an employee, it has been found through research and surveys that unionized workplaces and employees receive on average, better wages, better job benefits such as healthcare for them and their families, job security, and seniority wherein their job security is enhanced because of their seniority. To elucidate upon these benefits, you can conduct additional research or link to the website provided in the summary to obtain information provided by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In contrast, there are issues with becoming a unionized employee, and these include the requirement to pay monthly dues, the loss of autonomy in regard to decisions involving (your) employment as the union works collectively together to represent one unified voice, the potential of being treated less than others with seniority in regard to job security during job layoffs and economic hardships that require some employees to be let go, and the fact that unions have been losing membership and court decisions for the last 40 years, which has weakened their position within society.
