Labor Organization Law and Legal Definition

A "labor organization" is defined as "any organization of any kind, or any agency or employee representation committee or plan, in which employees participate and which exists for the purpose of dealing with employers concerning grievances, labor disputes, wages, rates of pay, hours of employment, or conditions of work." Civil Serv. Emples. Ass'n v. NLRB, 569 F.3d 88, 92 (2d Cir. 2009) Under 29 USCS § 152, definition of "labor organization" does not include employees in their individual capacities, even if they are acting in coordination with a union to organize a work place.
