The Challenge of Restructuring

North American Labor Movements Respond

Edited by Jane Jenson and Rianne Mahon

In this volume, political scientists, sociologists, lawyers, specialists in labor relations, economists, and unionists from Canada and the United States address the future of labor-management relations in two economies that are undergoing fundamental economic restructuring. The Challenge of Restructuring discusses how labor should respond to "restructuring," a euphemistic term for the economic squeeze on workers for givebacks to avoid plant closings and for the business efforts to abolish union workforces.
