organizational working conditions are less than desired. Conversely, some employers feel

maintain a conducive working relationship with management.

Briefly describe the role of management in an organization.
Similarly, briefly discuss the role of a union in an organization.
Finally, present:
A minimum of two (2) strategies/actions an organization can implement to create and
maintain a conducive working relationship with unions.
