Originally publlished under title: The law of collective bargaining.
"The third edition of this highly regarded resource includes relevant updates to case law and statutes throughout; it also has been significantly expanded to include an entire new part of the text, which features 11 new chapters that examine the practical aspects of the collective bargaining process. The first part of the text guides the reader through the foundational topics of collective bargaining :Sets out the historical, economic, and philosophical context within which the law operates. Introduces the reader to the major public players on the collective bargaining stage, as well as private players. Clarifies the origin and lifespan of a union's bargaining rights. Analyzes the game-changing rulings of the Supreme Court of Canada on Charter issues that have arisen in the labour law context. Includes major legislative changes since the last edition. Examines the collective agreement and key clauses. Examines the use of economic sanctions and the restrictions that the law places on economic warfare. Analyzes the rules governing internal union affairs, and most importantly, the relationship of the union member to his or her union. The second part of the text guides the reader through the chronology of the collective bargaining process :Considers how collective bargaining should be approached and what preparations are recommended. Looks at the ongoing nature of collective bargaining, sometimes starting even before the current agreement is ratified Reviews special forms of bargaining and special sectors of the economy within which bargaining occurs. Examines the advantages and impact of a collective agreement and how that may translate into the many workplaces that operate without a formal agreement, which may be of particular interest to non-unionized workplaces. Looks at the broader impact of the collective bargaining experience on Canadian workplaces and legislation. Considers some exploratory musings on how our collective bargaining laws shape us as a society and what the future might look like." --
