Praise for The Art of Collective Bargaining, Third Edition

"The Art of Collective Bargaining succeeds in combining an accessible overview of the legal principles governing collective bargaining together with balanced, real-world guidance. The concrete illustrations of what can happen at the bargaining table, the inclusion of model clauses, the discussion of the role and function of neutrals, the analysis of how to cost monetary proposals and the overview of employee benefit and pension plans will all provide invaluable assistance to experienced and less experienced negotiators alike, as they move through the various stages of the collective bargaining process".

Steven Barrett,

"For employees and employers alike, here is a concise, highly readable guide to the intricacies of collective bargaining. Everything's here, from opening doors (establishing relationships) to closing the deal. As instant classic, the book belongs on every library shelf behind every bargaining table."

Dr. Elaine Bernard, Executive Director (ret),
Harvard Labor and Worklife Program,
Harvard Law School (Cambridge)

 “This book will have great appeal for anyone who is new to the bargaining process. It breaks down the complexity of negotiations into comprehensive and understandable chapters. A "must have” for the novice and a great review for the seasoned professional, on either side of the bargaining table."

John Saunders,
Hicks Morley (Toronto)
