Overview

Now in its Sixth Edition, Labor Law: Cases, Materials, and Problems offers students a modern, analytically rigorous, and practical approach to the issues and challenges of labor law and labor policy. Written by well-known scholars in the field, this casebook continues to provide a thorough and careful approach to the field of labor law in an accessible and streamlined format that students and professors alike will appreciate.

This text continues to impress with its outstanding pedagogy and comprehensive nature:

  • written by a highly regarded author team, experienced in labor law scholarship, practice, and teaching
  • offers a comprehensive and challenging view of the field of labor law, highlighting issues of reform, economic and labor theory, and the respective roles of the NLRB, arbitrators, and federal and state courts
  • places special emphasis on accessibility, manifested in clear, streamlined case editing (which preserves authorities used by the courts); lucid explanatory textual material; and clear and pointed narratives, notes, and questions throughout
  • integrates current labor law scholarship in its exposition of NLRB and court decisions and identification of cutting-edge policy issues The Sixth Edition also covers many significant developments since the publication of the previous edition, including:
  • a new chapter, ¿Obtaining Bargaining Authority Outside of the NLRB Election Process,¿ with extensive coverage of the legal issues arising out the labor movement¿s increasing reliance on card-check and neutrality agreements bypassing the Labor Board¿s processes
  • treatment of the most recent NLRB and court decisions and pending cases, including:

- Oakwood Healthcare, Inc. (the nurses¿s supervisory authority cases)

- H.S. Care LLC (the Board¿s new teaching on units containing contingent workers)

- IBM Corp.(the Board¿s revisiting of the issue of Weingarten rights for non-union workers)

- Dana-Metaldyne (the Board¿s recognition bar in the context of card-check agreements)

- ¿partial lockout¿ decisions in the Board and the Courts of Appeals

- Dana II (exploring the extent to which unions and employers can establish principles for bargaining before unions obtain a card majority)

- Preemption challenges to ¿neutrality¿ ordinances

- Clarett v. NFL (the last gasp to antitrust challenges to sports league rules?)

  • new rules issued by the Dept. of Labor expanding the financial reporting obligations of unions
  • Problems Guide for professors containing problems for each chapter to test student understanding, accompanied by suggested answers/approaches
