From the Publisher
"The volume is sensibly organized, proceeding from a general examination of the legal and strategic contexts of collective bargaining, to a general discussion of impasses, to specific coverage of resolution techniques. There is much useful material for practitioners. Both authors are experienced in public-sector labor-management relations (the senior author is also active academically in the field). The appendixes contain examples of fact-finding and arbitration awards. Recommended for professional and graduate collections."
"The book is intended to address the specific needs of negotiators in the public sector: union and management officials and representatives, human resources management, labor lawyers, and academics concerned with public-sector labor-management relations. It outlines the basics of public sector collective bargaining and examines the steps typically found in statutory impasse resolution procedures. Also discussed are mediation techniques and the situations in which they are most often successful, the procedures used in fact-finding hearings and interest arbitration hearings, standards for decisions used by arbitrators, and several facets of impasse resolution."

"[T]his text might serve as supplementary for its public sector character, to a longer course dealing with collective bargaining. Or it might be used at a community college level with more specific supplements attuned to the applicable state statutes."
