From the Publisher:

Here is a distinctively up-to-date introduction to labor relations and collective bargaining--containing separate chapters on benefits, wage issues, discrimination laws, and international labor relations. The text includes new discussion of diversity in the workplace, total quality management, and robotics, work teams, and collective bargaining in sports.

From the Back Cover:

As the workplace changes, so do the processes of collective bargaining and labor relations. Authors Michael R. Carrell and Christina Heavrin examine the changes, issues, and complications characteristic of this environment as well as effective methods for negotiating. The text discusses key terms, practices, laws, sections of actual labor agreements and arbitration cases, and decisions of the National Labor Relations Board and courts that illustrate and emphasize important contemporary issues. Coverage of both public sector relations and international collective bargaining issues has been integrated and expanded throughout.
