Hot off the presses is The Cambridge Handbook of U.S. Labor Law for the Twenty-First Century, edited by Richard Bales and Charlotte Garden.
The publisher summarizes:
Over the last fifty years in the United States, unions have been in deep decline, while income and wealth inequality have grown. In this timely work, editors Richard Bales and Charlotte Garden - with a roster of thirty-five leading labor scholars - analyze these trends and show how they are linked. Designed to appeal to those being introduced to the field as well as experts seeking new insights, this book offers a politically diverse range of solutions, from the radical, such as a complete overhaul of federal labor law, to the incremental, including reforms that could be undertaken by federal agencies on their own.
I'll be pressing our library to get a copy of what couldn't be a timelier contribution.
