Fully revised and updated, this new edition continues to provide an excellent introduction to labour relations. Beginning with an examination of different perspectives of industrial relations, the book goes on to look at practical issues such as collective bargaining and negotiating and analyses recent changes. Although predominantly based on the UK experience, general principles are raised and discussed which makes Labour Relations an ideal introductory text for undergraduate students.
