This Understanding treatise examines the multifaceted and complex law of private-sector Labor Law. Because Understanding Labor Law focuses on relations between management and labor in the private sector, it deals primarily with the National Labor Relations Act, as amended, and its interpretation and application by the federal courts and the National Labor Relations Board. The book is organized in a format that is consistent with the organization of most Labor Law courses. At the end of each chapter is a section titled "Chapter Highlights," summarizing some of the major doctrines discussed in the chapter. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

Labor Guide to Labor Law is a comprehensive survey of labor law in the private sector, written from the labor perspective for labor relations students and for unions and their members. This thoroughly revised and updated fifth edition covers new statutes, current issues, and the latest developments in labor and employment law. The text emphasizes issues of greatest importance to unions and employees. Where the law permits a union to make certain tactical choices, those choices are pointed out. Material is included on internal union matters that tend to be ignored in management texts. Bruce S. Feldacker and Michael J. Hayes cover applicable labor law principles from a union's initial organizing campaign to the mature bargaining relationship, including such subjects as the employee right to engage in protected concerted activity, the duty to bargain, labor arbitration, the use of strikes, picketing and other economic weapons in resolving a labor dispute, the duty of fair representation, internal union regulation, and employment discrimination. This book is also a useful reference and review for full-time union officers and representatives who have a working knowledge of labor law but wish to brush up on certain points as needed in their work. Both authors have extensive experience in the construction field, and they have been careful to include material on those aspects of labor law that are unique to that field. Labor Guide to Labor Law is structured to present an unbiased and comprehensive explanation of labor law principles for anyone interested in the field. Thus, labor relations educators, as well as practitioners in the field representing labor, management, or individual employees, should also find the text suitable for their use. Each chapter includes a summary, review questions and answers, a restatement of "Basic Legal principles" with citations to key cases, and a bibliography for additional research.

Labor Law Analysis and Advocacy presents in detail, but within a single volume, the interpretation of the National Labor Relations Act as developed by the federal courts and the National Labor Relations Board. The book explores the pertinent legal rules as currently interpreted and applied; as well as the evolution and underlying purposes of the rules, the persuasiveness of the court and NLRB decisions, and the significant open issues. A unique and important feature is the treatment of matters of practice, procedure and strategy that are of importance to the practicing attorney, whether representing management, labor, employees or the government. Practice tips are interspersed throughout as "Advocate Practice Points" translating the legal rules into advice and strategies. These tips address the practicalities of labor law, and set forth thoughtful advice for use in common real-life situations, from the perspective of both labor and management. Labor Law Analysis and Advocacy is largely derived from a treatise in the Hornbook series (West Publishing Co.) written initially in 1976 (by Professor Gorman) and revised by Professors Gorman and Finkin in 2004. The principal audiences for this publication are both generalist and specialist practitioners, ranging from those interested in an introduction to basic labor law principles to those interested in the specifics of their application, whether presenting cases before courts or the NLRB or advising clients about concerted activities or collective bargaining. Labor Law Analysis and Advocacy is also of value to federal judges and their law clerks, and to students doing basic or advanced study in labor law.

Labor Law in the Contemporary Workplace is organized around contemporary problems as a means of teaching the core principles of labor law. It prepares students for the practice of labor law in the contemporary workplace by introducing them to the principles of American labor law and many of the issues that labor law attorneys face. Although the primary focus of the book is the National Labor Relations Act, considerable attention is given to the Railway Labor Act and public-sector labor laws because of their growing relative importance in contemporary practice. The second edition takes account of changes in the law since the first edition was published and in particular new interpretations of the National Labor Relations Act by the National Labor Relations Board and recent state restrictions on public sector collective bargaining.

There is a highly significant and under-considered intersection and interaction between migration law and labour law. Labour lawyers have tended to regard migration law as generally speaking outside their purview, and migration lawyers have somewhat similarly tended to neglect labour law. Examining and clarifying the interactions between migration, migration law and labour law, the book particularly focuses on how migration status has a bearing on labourrelations and the world of work. Contributors to the volume identify the many ways that migration law, as currently designed, divides the objectives of labour law, privileging employer concerns over the supplyof labour over worker-protective concerns. In addition, migration law creates a particular form of status, which affects labour relations, thereby dividing the subjects of labour law. Written by leading scholars of labour law, migration law, and migration studies, this book provides a diverse and multidisciplinary approach to this field of legal interaction, of interest to academics, policymakers, legal practitioners, trade unions, and migrants' groups alike.
