Congratulations to Seth Harris, Joe Slater, Anne Marie Lofaso, and David Gregory on the publication of their book Modern Labor Law in the Private and Public Sectors: Cases and Materials (LexisNexis, June 2013). Here's the publisher's description:
Modern Labor Law in the Private and Public Sectors: Cases and Materials presents a truly modern approach to labor law in the United States. It incorporates two modern trends in labor law: the shift of union density from the private-sector to the public-sector and the growth of organizing outside the NLRA process. The book incorporates both these modern trends, so students entering the practice of labor law - on the side of unions, employers, or government agencies - will understand what they are likely to encounter.
Modern Labor Law in the Private and Public Sectors: Cases and Materials is structured around the life cycles of the organizing and collective bargaining processes. Each chapter in the book begins with cases and materials relating to private-sector workers and also includes materials relating to the same issue in the context of public-sector employment. During the course of writing, the authors continually updated the content to reflect the changes in public-sector labor laws in several states and the new debates over policy.
