American Plan (union negotiations)

"For the U.S. Presidential Primary allocation system, see American Plan.

The American Plan is the term that most U.S. employers in the 1920s used to describe their policy of refusing to negotiate with unions. The policy promoted union-free open shops. As a result, union membership in 1920 shrank from 5 million to some 3.6 million in 1923.
