This casebook presents a truly modern approach to labor law in the United States. It incorporates two modern trends in labor law: the shift of union density from the private-sector to the public-sector and the growth of organizing outside the NLRA process. This book incorporates both these modern trends, so that students entering the practice of labor law will understand what they are likely to encounter. The new edition updates the content to reflect the changes in public-sector labor laws in several states and the new debates over policy.
