The author develops the model of collective bargaining relationships as a form of workplace government. In light of this model, he discusses the representational and legislative role of the steward within the workplace and reviews in some depth the problems involved in balancing the steward's responsibilities against the rights of the employer. Finally, he proposes a new standard for achieving that balance patterned after a legislative immunity model.
