Abstract:     
Employment relationships are frequently affected by altered circumstances of either companies or unions occasioned by sale, transfer, merger or shift in allegiance from a bargaining representative. At such time, doubt may surround the status of an existing collective bargaining agreement and the applicability of administrative directives. The nature and the extent of the change may have important relation to the obligations of resultant transferees and successors. Successor liability has been of two general kinds. Implementation of labor legislation is the primary source. Further consequences of successorship arise under collective agreements. With a view to distinguishing those factors which have led to the imposition of responsibility, instances of liability of successor employers and labor unions either for the acts of their predecessors or because of their status as successor will be analyzed within these categories.
