Hard Bargaining to Impasse
And the Employer's Right Unilaterally to Implement Its Final Bargaining Offer

"Hard bargaining" is the technique of aggressive collective bargaining by which employers lawfully may "take on" their union at the bargaining table to achieve the employer's bargaining agenda or to resist the union's and, upon bargaining impasse, to permissibly put into effect the employer's final offer even though the union boss does not agree to it.
