This chapter describes how union organizing developed as the gateway through which workers had to enter before they could fully access the most secure tier of the nation’s employer-centered social welfare system - - collective bargaining. It recounts how labor law’s protections for union organizing weakened, and so increasingly narrowed that entryway. This chapter covers the 1930s through the 1980s.

Keywords:   social welfare, labor law, National Labor Relations Board, union organizing, collective bargaining, Taft-Hartley Act, Wagner Act
