Labor Relations at the New York Daily News: Peripheral Bargaining and the 1990 Strike

Synopsis

This unique study of labor relations and the phenomenon of peripheral bargaining focuses on the high-profile and bitter dispute at the New York Daily News in 1990. Using a dramatic case study involving one of New York City's oldest newspapers, 10 entrenched unions, the Chicago Tribune Company, publishing magnate Robert Maxwell, and 1.2 million Daily News readers, Kenneth Jennings provides systematic and extensive analysis of a rancorous collective bargaining effort, revealing a new development in labor-management relations; peripheral bargaining. This development threatens to erode the well-established practice of traditional bargaining and usher in a new, more hostile labor-management era.
