Collective bargaining and labor relations.

Collective Bargaining and Labor Relations.

2d ed. By E. Edward Herman, Alfred Kuhn, Ronald L. Seeber. Englewood Cliffs, NJ, Prentice-Hall, Inc. 1987. 621 pp., bibliography.

This second edition has been revised and expanded to reflect the major changes that have taken place in the labor relations arena. The authors have attempted to capture the effect of some of these changes--economic fluctuations, foreign competition, and new technologies.

The chapter on "The Question of the Bargaining Unit' provides comprehensive coverage of different types of units. It examines the role and significance of National Labor Relations Board decisions and discusses single employer, multiemployer, and craft bargaining units.

The formulation of proposals, bargaining books, tactical moves, sources of data, and bargaining procedures are some of the issues addressed in the chapter on "Preparation for Bargaining.'

The subject of management and union security is discussed in some depth and provides insights into the broader nature of collective bargaining.
