Collective Bargaining in Government: An Introduction and Teaching Guide.
Saidens, Mark Henry
To be used with college students, this guide contains a reading selection on collective bargaining, discussion questions, and suggestions for class activities. The reading section examines the history of collective bargaining and discusses the philosophy governing labor relations in New York state. Discussion questions follow the reading. Activities for involving students in the study of labor relations in the public sector are suggested. Some examples follow. Students write a history of public sector labor relations in the United States. They compare public sector labor relations in the United States with public sector labor relations in other industrialized nations and write a formal report on their findings. In other activities, students examine the arguments for and against giving public employees the right to strike, do a comparative analysis of three or more contracts involving public employee unions, and write critical reviews of three books dealing with labor relations in the public sector.
