Journal of Collective Negotiations in the Public Sector
The increase in the number of public employees during the past three decades, the spread of collective bargaining throughout the public sector, and the recent financial woes of many governmental entities have all dramatically influenced public employee-employer labor relations. The Journal of Collective Negotiations in the Public Sector presents clear discussions of the problems involved in negotiating contracts, resolving impasses, strikes and grievances, and administering contracts in the various areas of public employment. Contributors to the Journal of Collective Negotiations in the Public Sector include experienced negotiators, public officials, and academic analysts of public sector labor issues. The differing viewpoints and expertise of the authors expose readers to diverse, comprehensive, stimulating presentations on a broad range of topics. Public sector bargaining demands a comprehensive grasp of laws as well as a broad familiarity with the background information pertinent to each type of negotiation. Aspirations of employees, attitudes of law-makers and of the community-at-large, decisions of regulatory agencies, goals of management, and the feelings of those who sit at the bargaining table are just some of the factual-intangible components of all collective bargaining situations. If you have ever negotiated or plan to sit down at the bargaining table, you need the Journal to help you prepare, understand and develop effective strategies for winning in the long as well as short term.
