Unions and Jewish Social Agencies

By Morton I. Teicher

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1966

The author argues that the resolution of conflict between social work unions and social agencies needs to move toward peaceful means that avoid coercive methods like strikes or lockouts. He affirms that a strike is seen as a union's ultimate weapon and to some it is even an inherent right. However, the author's opinion is that there are no absolute rights in free society. The author further asserts that once people agree that the right to strike is not automatic, alternative methods can be considered for the resolution to conflicts. The author proposes mediation as one alternative but acknowledges that it is not a new proposal. The author concludes by affirming that problems can be solved if people act on the central theme of ministry to the people.
