This new edition maintains the rigour and sophistication of the previous editions while making the material more accessible to students. The text focuses on the practice of industrial relations and considers current issues and approaches. The various contributors bring a breadth of knowledge and experience, providing a balanced treatment of topics and of differing practices across the country.


Four themes (greater applications, greater understanding of management, union and nonunion differences, and sensitivity to international comparisons) are incorporated throughout the book.
