John Budd continues to present the most dynamic, engaging approach to understanding labor relations in the 21st century with Labor Relations, 4/e. This textbook presents labor relations as a system for balancing employment relationship goals (efficiency, equity, and voice) and the rights of labor and management.

Budd feels that this process is an indelible part of the relationship between labor and management in American business. The different types of strikes help to bring some level of equity to this relationship. Budd argues that the impasse is one approach to placing pressure on an employer  . Budd sees the problems of the current workplace as traceable to this lack of balance in how unions and employees are more reticent to embracing a strike in the first place.

Budd presents labor relations as a system for balancing employment relationship goals (efficiency, equity, and voice) and the rights of labor and management. By weaving these themes with the importance of alternative perspectives on the nature of employment relationship throughout the text, students can learn not only how the traditional labor relations processes work, but also why these processes exist and how to evaluate whether they are working.

Labor Relations: Striking a Balance, 1st Edition, by John Budd presents labor relations as a system for striking a balance between the employment relationship goals of efficiency, equity, and voice, and between the rights of labor and management. Budd's Labor Relations broadens the narrow process focus of existing labor relations texts by placing the discussion of contemporary U.S. processes into the context of underlying themes - what are the goals of labor relations, are those goals being fulfilled, and are reforms needed. This textbook replaces the tired paradigm of "labor relations equals detailed work rules" with the dynamic paradigm of "labor relations equals balancing workplace goals and rights." Labor law, union organizing, bargaining, dispute resolution, and contract administration are central topics, but these processes are not presented as self-evidently good. These topics are placed in the broader context of the goals of the employment relationship, conflicting rights, and the environment of the 21st Century. This broader context serves to make labor relations more engaging and relevant to students. It also allows instructors to raise important "big picture" ideas while covering the applied business functions and strategies of the existing processes.

I took a class on Labor Relations while stationed in North Dakota. I bought this book used in 2007 and the best sections were highlighted which made my research easier. I ended up selling a book to a buddy of mine, but now wish I had kept this book. It contained a lot of history, facts, and info. I now work in a job that has a union. Book is probably outdated and been revised, but if you like to read and want to learn more on the history of how unions got their start... then I highly recommend this book.

I ordered the second edition, they sent the first edition. Ordered using the ISBN # so there is no excuse for the mistake. I am very disappointed and so was my teacher who recommended buying books this way.
