About this book


Fully revised and updated, the new edition of this highly popular book continues to provide an excellent introduction to labour relations. It begins with an examination of different perspectives of industrial relations before going on to look at practical issues such as collective barganining and negotiating. Although predominantly based on the UK experience, the author raises and discusses general principles which newcomers to the subject will readily understand. Changes that have taken place in recent years are also analysed, provided insights into the process of reform of trade unions, new labour relations practices and the impact of international changes.

Labour Relations is an ideal text for undergraduate students and the general reader who wants to know more about this area.
