what were the bargaining agents, collectively bargaining for, (during the second new deal FDR)?
were they bargaining for workers rights like more pay/ less hours? But, then what did the industry leaders gain in return if they gave more pay?
You're right, the bargaining agents wanted more pay, less hours, and better working conditions. Unions struck if they couldn't reach an agreement with management. The companies couldn't afford to let workers be idle, so often were forced to compromise in order to end the strike.
oh ok thank you
