Labor-management Relations 05/06: 2005-2006 (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


"Annual Editions: Labor-Management Relations 05/06" was developed to show both the breadth and depth of the labor-management relations field not only in the United States, but around the world. It provides perspectives to students from the legal issues, the managerial view, the union's view, and global views. Since the mid-1950's, union membership has continually been declining in the United States. At the same time, employees are faced with an increasing workload; decreases in benefits and pensions; wage concessions; and the loss of jobs to outsourcing. What is taking place within these circumstances? To better understand what is happening, "Annual Editions: Labor-Management Relations 05/06" looks at the inherent struggle between labor and management as well as the legal and global contexts in which it occurs. What does the future hold for labor-management relations?

Seven units include the topics of: Unit 1: Historical and Legal Regulation of Collective Bargaining which describes what is the legal framework of unionized and non-unionized workers and employers; Unit 2: Strategies for Collective Bargaining which shows how the parties involved in the relations deal with each other before, during, and after an organizing campaign; Unit 3: Labor-Management Contract Negotiations which shows how contracts are negotiated, whose interests are most important, and can equitable terms be found by the parties. It also includes: Unit 4: Dispute Resolution and Administering the Relationship which discusses how the parties of the contract deal with each other during the life of the contract, is there a best-way approach to managing the contractual relationship? and what happens if the relationship results in a strike; Unit 5: Public Sector Collective Bargaining which questions that besides the legal regulations of the public sector being different than the private sector, are there other important differences?

Unit 6: International Collective Bargaining which discusses what the future of collective bargaining would look like in other parts of the globe, and is the exploitation of labor in lesser-developed nations an issue of concern to global citizens? and, Unit 7: The Future of Labor Union Movement in the United States which questions if there is even a need for labor unions? and What can the unions do to enhance membership? Is there a critical mass of workers that deserve union representation?
