John Fossum's Labor Relations: Development, Structure, Processes discusses the history and development of labor relations, the structure of union organizations, union organizing and union avoidance, bargaining 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 including examples of both cooperative and adversarial relationships.
John Fossum is a Professor of Human Resources and Industrial Relations in the Industrial Relations Center, Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota.
