a plant, or otherwise eliminate bargaining unit work, has traditionally been questioned in view of inhibitions inherent in the collective bargaining agreement itself and restrictions imposed by the Unfair Labor Practices provisions of the National Labor Relations Act. The author summarizes the prior state of the law defining employer's rights as well as the views of those who have criticized past decisions as impeding managerial freedom, industrial development and diversification. The author then examines the current state of the law in the wake of the latest decisions by the National Labor Relations Board, and concludes that the recent recognition of managerial rights is fundamental to sustained economic growth.
