Statement of Labor-Management Relationships

By Mrs L. Langman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1949

The author provides the board member's perspective on the collective bargaining dispute between the social worker and the social agency in her response to both Bernard Segal and George Kirstein's articles on labor-management relationships in social agencies, which precede this article in this volume. Throughout the article, Langman argues against the wholesale utilization of "industry" bargaining tactics, which are employed by unionists. To the author, this practice is detrimental to the overall good of the field, in that it causes frustration and eventual resignation in the board member's mind, and polarizes the community, among other problems. Ultimately, Langman's goal is to distinguish between social work and "industry" based on dignity and maturity.
