National Labor Relations Act
Also cited NLRA or the Act; 29 U.S.C. §§ 151–169

Title 29, Chapter 7, Subchapter II, United States Code

The National Labor Relations Act was passed by Congress in 1935 after a series of violent strikes throughout many industries in the first half of the 1930s. The NLRA formalizes the process of creating labor unions and offers many protections for workers trying to form them. It prevents management from firing, blacklisting, and spying on workers engaged in an organizing campaign. It also establishes the National Labor Relations Board in order to oversee and process petitions for labor unions. Some also speculate that the Act was passed in order to appease the mass of angry workers who posed a real threat of revolt.

The NLRA is divided into 19 sections which I will post as I can.

Sections:

Section 1: FINDINGS AND POLICIES
Section 2: DEFINITIONS
Sections 3-6: NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD
Section 7: RIGHTS OF EMPLOYEES
Section 8: UNFAIR LABOR PRACTICES
Section 9: REPRESENTATIVES AND ELECTIONS
Section 10: PREVENTION OF UNFAIR LABOR PRACTICES
Sections 11-12: INVESTIGATORY POWERS AND PENALTIES
Setion 13-14, 16: LIMITATIONS
Sections 17, 19: SHORT TITLE and INDIVIDUALS WITH RELIGIOUS CONVICTIONS

Sections 15 and 18 have been ommitted from the Act
