The aviation industry relies heavily on organized labor unions

The aviation industry relies heavily on organized labor unions. Based on this week’s Bible verses,  Colossians 3: 22-24. 22 Bondservants, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. 23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will” articles, video, and textbook readings, (and other scripture or sources you care to bring in relevant to the topic) address the following issues: 

 

1) briefly explain the Railway Labor Act and how it relates to the airlines; 

 

2) are collective bargaining and labor unions consistent with biblical duties imposed on employees and employers? Is it merely another tool to keep sinful human behavior in check? 

 

3) How should a Christian respond when presented with the prospect of joining a labor union?  As always, you are welcome to use additional external sources that support your position.

NOTE: There are many strongly held opinions on this topic. The goal of this assignment is not for you to come to a specific conclusion but for you to think deeply about what the Bible says about this issue in the context of the American legal and aviation framework. Respectful debate is encouraged, and you will not be graded based on your stance on this issue. Discussions are expected to engage the assigned subject matter, drawing on the reading and study materials within the course as well as additional researched scholarly materials. At least 2 scholarly sources are required for the initial thread. Acceptable sources are course readings, case law, Bible verses, and peer-reviewed journal articles. At least 1 Biblical principle should be integrated in the initial thread though it should be appropriate to the topic at hand and should not be forced.

 

Controversial positions are welcome provided they are well-written, well-reasoned, and well-supported. Major points must be supported by reading and study materials, pertinent examples (conceptual and/or personal), and thoughtful analysis
