Overview

Private-sector collective bargaining in the United States is under siege. Many factors have contributed to this situation, including the development of global markets, a continuing antipathy toward unions by managers, and the declining effectiveness of strikes. This volume examines collective bargaining in eight major industries—airlines, automobile manufacturing, health care, hotels and casinos, newspaper publishing, professional sports, telecommunications, and trucking—to gain insight into the challenges the parties face and how they have responded to those challenges.The authors suggest that collective bargaining is evolving differently across the industries studied. While the forces constraining bargaining have not abated, changes in the global environment, including new security considerations, may create opportunities for unions. Across the industries, one thing is clear—private-sector collective bargaining is rapidly changing.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The authors propose that collective bargaining is developing differently in the various profiled industries, and that although there are contrary forces at work there may be new opportunities for union growth."—ILR Connections, Winter 2004

"Collective Bargaining in the Private Sector is a valuable resource for scholars, students, practitioners, and policy-makers wanting to learn about the contemporary state of US private sector industrial relations in the eight industries described. This volume will also have enduring value for scholars and practitioners in future years who can use it to look back and see what US industrial relations was like at the start of the new millennium."—John Budd, University of Minnesota, The Journal of Industrial Relations 46:1, March 2004
