Mismanagement can be a source of great conflict in the workplace. Most of the time, companies want increased productivity but without additional costs. They want more sales but set aside workers benefits and safety. These are just some of the common scenario that can lead to labor management disputes. It is therefore very important that things are kept agreeable for labor and management.
One way to do this is for management to comply with everything that OSHA or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration demands. But things are never perfect in a company and workplace setting. There will inevitably be disagreements between management and labor. This is more common in states where labor unions are well established like in Ohio. Some conflicts are so severe that workers go to the extent of going on strike, some excessively violent.

Good Labor Relations Prevents Labor Management Problems
Labor relations do not only involve contract discussions. There is a bigger labor-management connection between employers and workers. The union's constant duties involve doing things for its members like settling issues regarding contracts, sitting in meetings with management and workers undergoing disciplinary probes. The management, on the other hand, wants efficient workers and increased productivity.
