Work and Family and Unions: Labor's Agenda for the 1990s. The BNA Special Report Series on Work and Family: Special Report No. 20.
Bureau of National Affairs, Inc., Washington, DC.
This special report examines the labor movement's growing interest in benefits that help two-income families and single parents. The report also: (1) examines benefits that unions have won for their members and employers' reactions to labor's increasing advocacy on behalf of working parents; (2) profiles the results of union activism for work and family benefits around the country; and (3) discusses union strategies for winning work and family benefits. Included in the report are case studies of union organizing activities and outcomes at Harvard University, and among New York state employees, postal workers, Colorado grocery workers, and Santa Clara County, California employees. The appendix contains the text of family care provisions of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company's collective bargaining agreement with its two largest unions, the Communications Workers of America and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, which some observers say will open the door for other unions seeking family benefits. Annotated citations of the Bureau of National Affairs' special report series on work and families, numbers 1-19, are provided. (RH)
