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.

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.
