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.

Not the text book. If you choose kindle edition somehow amazon links it to the study guide instead of the text. Beware.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great for college Feb. 2 2016

Received this when I was in school. Amazon rent is probably the best place to get the books you need. Grant it they do not have all the books you will need but most of them they will. I was even able to find some that my instructors said that I may have an issue finding. Amazon rent saved me a ton of money and I recommend it for any and everyone in school. If you are going to be a little late on your return they can extend your rental for a low fee with out having to buy the book at full cost returning the books are easy as well. This in itself should inspire folks to get out there and get their degree.

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. :)

Bought the book as a course requirement. Read the book because it is very informative and explains a lot of the screwy things the unions do today!
