Public Sector Bargaining and Strikes. Sixth Edition.
Public Service Research Council, Vienna, VA.
The growth of unionization and the enactment of collective bargaining legislation are considered to be the causes of increased strike activity in the public sector. This paper includes statistical data on the frequency and number of public employee strikes in each state; summarizes the state labor legislation; and presents an average of strikes, workers involved, and man-days lost per year in each state. The authors conclude that a method other than compulsory public employee collective bargaining would be in the public's best interest. (MLF)
