Authored by a well-respected team in labor relations, An Introduction to Collective Bargaining & Industrial Relations, 4/e 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). Two extensive, class-tested mock-bargaining exercises are included. International and comparative labor relations are both integrated throughout and receive full chapter treatment. No other textbook provides such a thorough treatment of international/global issues. Numerous examples are provided in the text and in boxes that include coverage on recent strikes, collective bargaining negotiations, and other contemporary collective bargaining events. The authors relate in a direct and clear fashion how concepts can be used to help understand current events.
