The American Labor Movement

Trace the beginning of the American labor movement from legislation currently affecting workers to what the future may hold. From the beginning of labor-management cooperation to the development of the high-performance workplace, explore the origins of unions and how their evolution has affected the collective bargaining process today. 

Compare public- and private-sector union structures; examine labor developments in the 19th and 20th centuries; review the Wagner Act; and discuss the growth of public employee unions and union structure. Other areas discussed include strikes and their alternatives, as well as trends in collective bargaining.
