9780131868724: Labor Relations and Collective Bargaining: Cases, Practice, and Law (8th Edition)

The eighth edition of this best-selling book continues to provide readers with a realistic picture of actual collective bargaining and labor relations situations drawn from the authors' considerable experiences. Sections of actual labor agreements as well as arbitration cases and decisions of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and the courts illustrate and emphasize contemporary issues of collective bargaining and labor relations. Experts in the fields of labor law and arbitration have contributed “tips” on how the concepts in the book can actually be applied. In addition to covering history and law, workplace challenges, the collective bargaining process, and labor contracts, major features of this new edition include expanded coverage of public sector labor relations, international collective bargaining issues, union organizing and avoidance strategies, and collective bargaining in professional sports. Because of its comprehensive coverage and excellent resource material, this book is an excellent reference for human resource directors, labor relations directors, personnel directors, and labor negotiators.

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.

New features and significantly revised sections in the new edition of this highly acclaimed text include the following:

  • Arbitration case studies that allow students to play the role of arbitrator
  • "Develop Your Own Negotiating Skills" exercises
  • Union organizing and avoidance strategies
  • Interest-based bargaining
  • Employee misconduct
  • "TIPS" and "FORE"—what managers can and cannot say in organizational campaigns
  • 24 new cases and case studies
  • Collective bargaining in professional sports
