Collective bargaining is a process in which workers negotiate as a group with their employers regarding their workplace.
They believed that workers acting in a group had more power than a single one acting alone.
It was started by the
American Federation of Labor (AFL
) as one of their ideas.
Sometimes, to get the other side to agree with them, the union or employers would organize strikes or a lockout.
The AFL relied on economic pressure to get their employers to cave into their demands.
