Boulwarism Law and Legal Definition

Boulwarism is a labor law principle accepted for negotiating between employer and the employee. This principle is used as a method of bargaining tactic in which the employer researches the probable outcome of collective bargaining, and the information is used to make a firm settlement offer to union on a take it or leave it basis. It is a type of offer or counter offer that is not meant to be negotiated. The outcome of this method is that there will not be a real negotiation. Hence, this method of negotiation is considered as an unfair labor practice by the National Labor Relations Board.
