The major labor relations laws have helped or hindered the development of unionsbecause throughout the centuries there has been a see-saw effect. Some of the laws havebeen for the unions and other laws have been against the unions. While the pro-laborWagner Act of 1935 led to union growth the anti-union Taft-Hartley Act of 1947 led tounion decline. The Wagner Act gave unions the right to organize workers without beingharassed or intimidated by employers and it established the NLRB which had theresponsibility to assure that elections to determine if a union would represent workerswere fair while the Taft-Hartley Act gave new rights to businesses, contained a number oflaws and had numerous benefits for employers.
