Overview

This controversial but well-documented and deftly argued study analyzes the present and future prospects for organized labor in the private sector. The book takes the decline and ultimate disappearance of old style labor unions - not just in the United States but throughout the developed world - as fact. The author views the Democratic political party as the future of a redefined union movement in the United States. He elaborates on the extent and reasons for the current decline of unions by addressing four vital questions: Can private-sector unions ever make a comeback? If organized labor cannot recover, what are the consequences for both unionized and non-unionized workers, for the economy, and for unionism itself? What is the experience of other countries, particularly Canada whose industrial relations parallels that of the United States? What explains the international decline of unions and the change in character of unionism?
