- In the collective bargaining process, the parties don't have to come to an agreement, but they are required by law to negotiate "in good faith" toward that goal.
- Unions typically represent workers during the collective bargaining process, but any group of workers can organize themselves -- with or without a union -- and earn the right to collectively bargain under the NLRA.
