Product Description


"The most profound, single-source work on labor relations in aviation. A must read for all aviation law students and those seeking management jobs in the aviation industry."--Todd Hubbard, Professor of Law and Ethics, Oklahoma State University, coauthor of Survey of Aviation Law

"Kaps, Hamilton and Bliss have successfully filled the decade-long need for a text that thoroughly examines the dynamic evolution of collective bargaining in aviation and aerospace. In Labor Relations in the Aviation and Aerospace Industries, the authors have effectively woven a revealing tapestry of the dynamic past, present, and future of collective bargaining in our industry. Pivotal pieces of litigation, legislation, and related public policy are presented, as well as notable labor and management actions, obligations and opportunities. University and industry audiences alike will appreciate the thought-provoking cases and valuable analysis provided in this text, which explores areas of interest to airlines, airports, aerospace, governmental agencies, and entities engaged in collective action in the industry."--Robin Sobotta, Ph.D., coauthor of The Administration of Public Airports, 5th Ed.

If you are looking for the textbook, this is not it. It is the study guide but listed as the textbook.
Good overall. March 3 2014

I think I liked the study guide more than the book.
However, all in all, it was just another textbook I had to have for class.
Not my favorite class by far. :)

Not the text book. If you choose kindle edition somehow amazon links it to the study guide instead of the text. Beware.
