1974: Collective Bargaining in Libraries
Allerton Park Institute Proceedings (no. 20, 1974); Edited by Frederick A. Schlipf
The twentieth annual Allerton Park Institute, at which the papers in this book were originally presented, was designed to examine in an unemotional way the field of library unionization. Rather than to examine once again the good or evil inherent in collective bargaining, or to provide helpful pointers for fending off this development, the Institute was designed to present a thorough overview of the way in which collective bargaining actually functions in libraries. This was accomplished by reviewing the background and current problems of library unionization, providing participants with a basic knowledge of collective bargaining methods and techniques, and examining the impact of collective bargaining on various types of libraries.
