Book Description

August 1991 0070336458 978-0070336452
Authored by a well-respected team in labor relations, this text covers key topics in industrial relations and collective bargaining using a unique conceptual framework based on the three levels of industrial relations activity (strategic, functional, and workplace). Formerly a graduate-level book, it has been completely rewritten for undergraduates. Two extensive, class-tested mock-bargaining exercises are included. International and comparative labor relations are both integrated throughout and receive full chapter treatment. The text extensively discusses recent reorganizations in the process and outcome of bargaining, including detailed treatment of the participatory process.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use and find key terms! Aug. 3 2010

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I liked this book. It was a well wriiten text with minimal typos which I found to be uncommon lately. All the key terms were bold throughout the reading and easy to find. It also has a dictionary in the back for key terms which many newer text books no longer have. If you are looking for information fast, this is the book for you! Very easy to use!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not well suited as an introductory learning text June 26 2008
By BA Student - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book was the required reading for an introductory class to the subject of industrial relations and collective bargaining. Experienced in the business world, I found this text difficult at best to follow, especially in terms of an historical time-line. I found the material extremely fragmented in presentation, seemingly jumping from one focus to another. It was a challenge to associate the context with the section headers, as the flow was not comfortably predictable. The text often assumes a prerequisite of knowledge that I didn't expect of introductory course material. The book also introduces terminoloy (often in bold text) and concepts upon which it never elaborates. Overall, I did not find the text supportive to learning. I relied heavily on online resources to fill in the gaps in order to pass the course.
