Overview

Understanding Labor Relations in the 21st Century

John Budd continues to present the most dynamic, engaging approach to understanding labor relations in the 21st century with Labor Relations, 3/e. Budd's text shows labor relations as a system for balancing employment relationship goals (efficiency, equity, and voice) and the rights of labor and management. Labor Relations moves beyond a process-based focus in studying this topic by placing the discussion of contemporary U.S. processes into the context of underlying themes, such as what the goals of the system are, whether or not those goals are being fulfilled, and if reform is needed. Central topics are placed in the broader context of the goals of the employment relationship, conflicting rights, and the current business environment. Budd's broader context, therefore, makes labor relations more engaging and relevant to students.

Third Edition feature include:
• A condensed, foundation section that opens the book, allowing students and instructors to cover labor history, labor law, and key labor relations processes earlier in the book.
• A streamlined text to improve student accessibility. The text has been reduced from 14 to 13 chapters, with shorter, focused chapters and more advanced topics moved to "Digging Deeper" features at the end of the relevant chapters. Numerous subheadings have also been added to the text to foster great student comprehension.
• Updated dicussion of important public policy topics, especially the Employee Free Choice Act, debates over NLRB decisions on company e-mail policies and supervisors, prospects for reversals of Bush-era legal rulings under the Obama administration, the transfer of retiree benefits from the Big Three automakers to the UAW, and the possibility of a reunification between the AFL-CIO and Change to Win.
• Increased coverage of labor-management partnerships and numerous other contemporary updates throughout the text.
