2010 Nevada Code
Chapter 614 Organized Labor and Labor Disputes
NRS 614.090 Declaration of public policy.

NRS 614.090 Declaration of public policy. In the interpretation and application of this section and NRS 614.100 and 614.110, the public policy of this state is declared as follows:

1. Negotiations of terms and conditions of labor should result from voluntary agreement between employer and employees. Governmental authority has permitted and encouraged employers to organize in the corporate and other forms of capital control. In dealing with such employers, the individual organized worker is helpless to exercise actual liberty of contract and to protect his or her freedom of labor, and thereby to obtain acceptable terms and conditions of employment. Therefore, it is necessary that the individual worker have full freedom of association, self-organization, and designation of representatives of the worker's own choosing to negotiate the terms and conditions of his or her employment, and that the worker shall be free from the interference, restraint or coercion of employers of labor, or their agents, in the designation of such representatives or in self-organization or in other concerted activities for the purpose of collective bargaining or other mutual aid or protection.

2. The employers have enjoyed these rights for ages and now enjoy the right to negotiate with their employees and prospective employees through agencies and representatives of their own choosing. The workers should enjoy the same right and should be accorded the same privilege in protecting and providing for their most valuable asset, the labor of their brain and brawn, as is accorded the employers in the protection and enhancement of their property rights in their industries and affairs. Mutuality of conduct in the negotiations between the employers and workers concerning wage agreements, working conditions and all other matters connected with the employment of human beings in industry of any kind is essential to the welfare of both and to the industrial peace of the community, State and Nation.
