Abstract

As the Chief Executive Officer of your company, you have been bombarbed by literature about the virtues of Total Quality Management (TQM) and the long list of success stories about the profitable implementation of TQM programs. You have decided to implement a TQM approach to management. You plan to create a number of committees or teams to empower the workers to make improvements and enhance the profitability of the company. Now that the committees are in place and are making great strides, you learn that the creation of the committees may constitute an unfair labor practice under the existing labor laws. Is this possible?
