Public Sector Bargaining and Strikes. Second Edition.
Public Service Research Council, Vienna, VA.
It is the opinion of the authors of this position paper that collective bargaining in the public sector causes an increase in strikes and employee unrest, resulting in a diminution of public services. The authors assert that public employee collective bargaining means giving unions the power to control government through intimidation of the taxpaying public. This paper includes statistical data on the frequency and number of public employee strikes in each state--data intended to bolster the authors' contention that collective bargaining in the public sector is destructive. They conclude that a method other than compulsory public employee collective bargaining would be in the public's best interest. (Author/DS)
