All matters concerning rates of pay, wages, hours of employment or other terms and conditions of employment are “mandatory” subjects of bargaining about which the employer, as well as the employees’ representative, must bargain in good faith. Mandatory subjects of bargaining include such matters as pension plans for present employees, bonuses, group insurance, grievance procedures, safety practices, seniority, procedures for discharge, layoff, recall or discipline, and union security. The NLRA does not require either party to agree to a proposal or require the making of a concession.​
