This book surveys court litigation arising from the period 1975-78 concerning the field of public sector labor relations. Part 1 summarizes recent trends and developments in the field. Transcripts of the 15 court cases most likely to be cited or referred to in the future are reproduced in full in Part 2, with an analysis of each case and its significance. Topics covered include constitutional questions, the authority of the courts, unit determination, the duty of fair representation, the impact of the Civil Service system, union security, the scope of bargaining, fiscal crises, arbitration, obligations upon impasses, and strikes. Finally, Part 3 offers a comprehensive review of significant literature, much of it reprinted from journals, concerning problems of and questions about labor relations on various governmental levels.
