As unions mature : an analysis of the evolution of American unionism by Richard Allen Lester( Book )

30 editions published between 1958 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With 18 million members and with power and influence that penetrate industry, the financial centers, community life, and even foreign trade, trade unionism in America has come of age. Gone is much of the old militancy and aggressiveness that so characterized unions before World War II. In this short book a wise and experienced observer attempts to explain why. He points out the factors that influence the ageing of unions, the settling clown process, and the social and economic implications of advanced unionism. He examines the experiences of five major unions, Amalgamated Clothing Workers, United Automobile Workers, the Carpenters, the Teamsters, and the United Mine Workers; and for comparison the labor movement trends in both Britain and Sweden. Here is a foundation for understanding the “mature” unions of today and for intelligent judgment of current proposals for union reform.Originally published in 1958.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Antibias regulation of universities; faculty problems and their solutions by Richard Allen Lester( Book )

7 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document discusses many of the specific problems associated with increasing the membership of women and members of minority groups on the faculties of major colleges and universities. Emphasis is placed on the fact that current faculty members favor such an increase, although many of the action programs prescribed to achieve it fail to take into consideration either the inadequate supply of qualified people among those groups currently underrepresented on the faculties or the characteristics of academic employment that distinguish it from employment in industry. At stake is not only an equitable system of academic employment, but also a loss of financial support as governments apply economic sanctions to achieve numerical hiring goals that often have little relevance to the character and mission of universities.
