Bargaining Strategies Companies use when Dealing with Labor Unions.

INTRODUCTION

Locate the following article in the Business Source Ultimate database in the   CSU Online Library:  

Hurd, R. W. (2013). Moving beyond the critical     synthesis:  Does the law  preclude a future for US unions? Labor     History,  54(2), 193-200. 

This article is a reflective essay that assesses the  strength of comments     made by Christopher L. Tomlins in his book The State and Unions  (1985),  which looks back over the past quarter century. Various predictions     were made   concerning union decline and failed revival efforts as  well as     counterfeit   rights offered to the U.S. working class.
