Description

The United States labor movement can credit—or blame—policies and regulations created during World War II for its current status. Focusing on the War Labor Board's treatment of arbitration, strikes, the scope of bargaining, and the contentious issue of union security, James Atleson shows how wartime necessities and language have carried over into a very different postwar world, affecting not only relations between unions and management but those between rank-and-file union members and their leaders.
