Part I of this Article explains why disability is a helpful lens and reviews the theoretical underpinnings of the roles of contracts, such as CBAs, in setting workplace dynamics and generating "informal laws." Part II describes the methodology used in this study of CBAs. Part III is a taxonomy of the models of disability-framing and workplace dynamics that the CBAs reflect. Part IV presents a new framework for envisioning how the corrective, civil rights vision of the Idealist model might transform workplaces for all workers-marginalized or empowered, public or private-and, therefore, transform labor and employment law. In other words, these models speak to general workplace issues, such as the responsiveness of unions and employers to changing dynamics in American families and communities and in providing receptive, representative, and flexible workplaces.
