Synopsis By: Strongin - Proceeding Author: David L. Cole

Review of the AFL-CIO no-raiding agreement, the sole purpose of which is posited as protection of the status quo with respect to the established bargaining relationship. The author notes that the agreement can be viewed as anti-competitive and as limiting employees’ full freedom of choice, but considers those concerns to be marginal, suggesting that they will be ameliorated with time or by the expiration of the agreement.
