CASE Teamsters and the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP)
1. Is it good or bad for one union to challenge another to represent these deputies, and why?
Unions negotiate workers’ terms of pay, promotion, layoff, and retirement; union members may not
bargain for themselves. However, very few union members voted for this representation. Once
organized, unions remain certified indefinitely: Most union members join as a condition of employment.
At the very least, unions should regularly stand for re-election. Even better, Congress and state
legislatures should allow workers to choose whether they want union representation, and if so, who
represents them—unionized or not. This would give workers the ability to negotiate terms that
represent their needs, instead of being forced into a one-size-fits-all contract. The right to join, or refuse
to join, a union rests on freedom of association. Union members should have the same rights as other
citizens to decide who will represent them.
2. Discuss whether the aggressive approach of Teamsters is appropriate and legal under the circumstances
What is more, obvious about the aggressive approach in legal terms is that it is necessary for different
types of situations to be handled in an aggressive advocacy approach Often times representatives seem
to be more soft-spoken in their approach for another different reason Rather than seeing lobbying
styles as culture traits, it discusses the institutional constraints affecting behavior. In particular, the
transparency of political negotiations that create different incentive structures in the US .However, the
approach of styles are more than the cumulative effect of these different elements. They are linked to
the nature of the political system, of which the institutional constraints are a reflection.
