Employee and Labor Relations in four work settings

Explain which definition of work best defines the relationship that exists in each of these work settings?

1. Service organization.
2. Non-profit organization.
3. Manufacturing company, without a union, owned by a family.
4. Publicly-traded corporation operating in a global environment.

For a service organization, differentiate between the public and private sector, for example, a school or public agency versus a private law firm or training company.
