Abstract

The National Labor Relations Act protects employees through the regulation of collective bargaining. Employees belong to a bargaining unit which represents the employees in the collective bargaining process. However, those employees with a family relationship to the owners or managers of a company may be excluded from the bargaining unit based on this family relationship. The author in this comment proposes that all employees should initially be included in the bargaining unit regardless of their family relationship status.
