The article discusses the impact of environmental variables on the accommodation processes of union-management relationships. External factors do not necessarily predetermine the nature of a collective bargaining relationship. Within each of the environments created by a combination of external factors, there is usually a considerable variation in the quality of the relationship. There are five main types of union-management relationships, namely union-dominated, management-dominated, union-management partnership, union-hostile and finally, a peaceful partnership with unions having a higher degree of influence over management.
