Labor Relations: Development, Structure, Processes by John Fossum presents the history and development of labor relations, the structure and internal politics of union organizations, union organizing and union avoidance, bargaining structures and issues, and the process of negotiations and contract administration. As a result of decreasing union membership over the last twenty years, more material in the book addresses employee relations in nonunion organizations, and includes examples of both cooperative and adversarial relationships.
John Fossum is a Professor of Human Resources and Industrial Relations in the Center for Human Resources and Labor Studies, Carlson School of Management, at the University of Minnesota.
