Collective Bargaining and Labor Relations, 4th edition
By E. Edward Herman
This is a well executed and readable text used extensively in undergraduate and graduate-level programs that will be helpful to even the most experienced union leaders while providing interested activists with a serious and broad-based understanding of collective bargaining and labor-management relations. It would be difficult to find a more thorough examination and explanation of the complex subject matter that is the labor-management dance.
Chapters include: Development and Growth of the Labor Movement; The State of the Labor Movement; Evolution of the Legal Framework for Private-Sector Collective Bargaining; Some Effects of the Law on Unions and Management; Union and Employer Organizational Structure in the Private Sector; Management and Union Security; Bargaining Structure; Preparation for Bargaining; The Negotiation Process; Bargaining Theory and Bargaining Power; Costing of Labor Contracts; Ethical and Unethical Conduct and the Collective Bargaining Process; Dispute Resolution and Regulation; Contract Administration; and Public Sector Collective Bargaining. Several appendices, a bargaining simulation section and a variety of forms add to the value of this comprehensive tool. 542 pages paperback
