"The authors propose that collective bargaining is developing differently in the various profiled industries, and that although there are contrary forces at work there may be new opportunities for union growth."—ILR Connections, Winter 2004
"Collective Bargaining in the Private Sector is a valuable resource for scholars, students, practitioners, and policy-makers wanting to learn about the contemporary state of US private sector industrial relations in the eight industries described. This volume will also have enduring value for scholars and practitioners in future years who can use it to look back and see what US industrial relations was like at the start of the new millennium."—John Budd, University of Minnesota, The Journal of Industrial Relations 46:1, March 2004
