Questions and Answers in Public Sector Labor Relations. A Practitioner's Guide.
Indiana Univ., Bloomington. Midwest Center for Public Sector Labor Relations.
The purpose of this guide is to answer common questions about public sector labor relations with special emphasis on how this sector differs from the private sector. A beginning section offers general information defining and explaining public sector labor relations. A segment on labor relations law details legislation and the function of administrative agencies. A section on unit determination explains bargaining units and their makeup, and a section on the bargaining agent discusses the duties of bargaining agents and their selection through election or authorization cards. One segment focuses on collective bargaining and simplifies confusing or difficult points. A final section on contract administration and grievance procedures details how the contract is put into effect, the function of the shop steward, grievances, and arbitration. (Author/JM)
