Annotation: This text examines the rights and responsibilities of unions and management, the negotiation and administration of labor agreements, collective bargaining issues, and the application of labor relations processes to various work arrangements.
Abstract: The text places labor relations process in a historical and legal perspective, considers how employees become unionized, and examines the relationships between labor's various organizational components. Four chapters look at negotiation and administration of the labor agreement, addressing the resolution of negotiation impasses, the development of cooperation, contract administration, and labor arbitration used to resolve disputes. Also examined are various work rules pertaining to the outcomes of the labor relations process. These deal with employee discipline, managerial prerogatives, union security, the rights of minority and female employees, administrative issues, and economic issues. The text concludes with an examination of public-sector labor relations, foreign labor movements, transnational collective bargaining, and nontraditional labor relations sectors (white-collar employees, professional sports, health care, and agriculture), chapter references, a table of cases, an exercise in collective bargaining negotiations, and name and subject indexes.
Index Term(s): Arbitration; Collective bargaining; Discipline; Employee grievances; Labor relations; Unions
