Unions play a role in both private and public organizations in the United States. During the country’s height in manufacturing, unions were predominant in many organizations such as steel mills, auto manufacturers, etc. The 1960s began to show a rise in union activity and membership in public organizations. It was noted that there were dissimilarities in collective bargaining between public-sector and private sector organizations. Distinctions existed both in the issues that were placed on the table for collective bargaining but also the processes that were used.
In Microsoft PowerPoint or Word create a Poster presentation that compares and contrasts labor relations and union activity in private versus public organizations. Electronic posters can be a series of PowerPoint slides or linked Word documents that cover the required sections. On your poster, depict the changes that have occurred in union organizing in both private and public sector organizations and the impact this has had on each type of organization as well as the role of human resources.
Include a title for your poster. Incorporate graphics such as illustrations, photographs, and drawings that support your presentation and make it interesting and understandable. Include your “speaker notes.” The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists.
The poster should be neat and presentable and free of errors in capitalization, usage, punctuation, or spelling. All sources for background information and for all borrowed graphics are cited on the front of the poster.
Support your poster presentation with at least five (5) scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.
Length: May vary
