Employment Name: Course: Lecturer: City State: Question One According to (Carrell & Heavrin 2013) the company mainly engages itself in eliminating the hazardous waste. The employees fall into three categories which entail; the unskilled laborers (who are the field technicians) the truck drivers and operators and the field supervisors who are in charge of the area jobs. The main work of the union was to organize the companies mainly dealing with the dangerous elements. However the company treatment for the “overt” applications was unfair. The “overt” applicants were in positions. Regarding the two “covert” salts applications the company allows the two applicants (Castillo and Rivera) to complete their application processes; as a result they are hired as field technicians despite them lacking the right qualifications. Furthermore the receptionist’s statements during the conversation with the “overt” salts applications clearly show that the company is not willing to become a union shop.

Then, address the following: 1.Explain how the company’s treatment of both the “covert” and “overt” salts applications for jobs compares to the recommended counter-salting steps for employers. 2.Would either the “covert” or the “overt” salts in this case satisfy the NLRB ruling that applicants for employment must be genuinely interested in seeking employment before claiming protection under the NLRA? 3.Does the company’s opposition to becoming a union shop indicate that there was anti-union animus in refusing to consider the “overt” salts for employment? Your response should be a minimum of 150 words per question. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations in APA format. Textbook Reference Carrell, M. R. & Heavrin, C. (2013).
