THE LABOR RELATIONS PROCESS, 9th Edition provides you with the latest information available on current research, issues and events in labor relations. To bring this dynamic field to life, the book integrates real-world examples and quotes from practitioners. This comprehensive text examines the labor movement from its inception to current and emerging trends, including topics such as unions, labor agreements, collective bargaining, arbitration, and labor relations in government, white-collar, and international contexts. The authors give an in-depth analysis of all facets of the relationship between management and labor, including a study of the rights and responsibilities of unions and management; the negotiation and administration of labor agreements; and labor-management cooperation. Other topics explored include the results of the labor relations process, and collective bargaining issues such as healthcare costs containment, pensions, labor productivity and alternative work arrangements.

William H. Holley taught labor relations, collective bargaining, and arbitration for 32 years at Auburn University, and worked as an arbitrator in many industries, from airlines to professional sports to the Postal Service. Widely published, he coauthored Personnel/Human Resource Management with Ken Jennings and Labor Relations: An Experimental and Case Approach with Roger Wolters. His research has appeared in the Academy of Management Journal, Labor Law Journal, Personnel Psychology, and other journals. An active member of the Southern Management Association (a division of the Academy of Management), he served as Secretary and President, as well as a board member for the Journal of Management. He is also a member of the National Academy of Arbitrators, serving as its Executive Secretary-Treasurer, Vice President, and President. Dr. Holley received his B.S. and M.B.A. from Mississippi State University, and his Ph.D. from the University of Alabama.

Roger S. Wolters is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Management at Auburn University, where his primary interests included labor law, collective bargaining, and dispute resolution. Coauthor of Labor Relations: An Experiential and Case Approach with William H. Holley, Jr., his research was published in Labor Law Journal, Arbitration Journal, Employee Responsibilities and Rights Journal, Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, Industrial Relations, and other journals. Dr. Wolters has consulted to private and public organizations, and served as an Administrative Hearing Officer for grievances with the City of Auburn, Alabama. He earned his B.B.A. and M.A. from the University of North Florida, and his Ph.D. in Labor and Industrial Relations from the University of Illinois.
