Collective Bargaining: How it Works and Why - 3rd Edition
About the Book:
This is a manual of the theory and practice of collective bargaining, how it works and why. It is not a textbook or a "how to" book. It is a work that looks at how collective bargaining actually works. The theories and practices presented here are enhanced by the experiences of not only the two authors, but of the many practitioners who have been able to examine in a new light their experiences with the concepts discussed here.
