Excerpt

The extensive literature on the development of the labor movement in the United States and its impact on the American system of industrial relations has been largely concerned with private industry. Research on collective bargaining has likewise been concentrated on unions of workers employed in the private sector of the economy. The growth of employee organization and collective bargaining in the public sector during the last decade has created a need for greater knowledge and understanding of the organizations--both union and nonunion--that represent public employees.

This book is designed to meet that need. It is the third volume in the Brookings series of Studies of Unionism in Government, arising from a program of research undertaken by the Institution in 1967 with the encouragement of the National Civil Service League and financial support from the Ford Foundation.

The first volume in the series, The Unions and the Cities , by Harry H. Wellington and Ralph K. Winter Jr., deals with the legal problems arising from the importation of collective bargaining into the public sector. The second, Managing Local Government under Union Pressure , by David T. Stanley with the assistance of Carole L. Cooper, concentrates on the influence of unions on administrative practices of U.S. cities and urban counties.
