Countering Strikes and Militancy in School and Government Services: A Practical Guide for Coping with Employee Strife.
Neal, Richard G.; Johnston, Craig D.
This book serves as a practical guide to be used by public agencies that have entered into collective bargaining with their employees and must therefore face the possibility of employee strikes and acts of militancy. Seven major areas are addressed: distinctions between public sector and private sector strikes; the use of interest arbitration as an alternative to strikes; major causes of strikes; warning signs of impending strikes; measures to take for avoiding strikes; legal actions that can be taken before, during, and after strikes; and methods for organizing strike plans.
