The Routledge Companion to Employment Relations, edited by Adrian Wilkinson, Tony Dundon, Jimmy Donaghey, and Alexander Colvin, was published last month and features chapters by CIRHR faculty and alumni. The collection is described by the publisher as “an extensive reference work that offers students and researchers an introduction to current scholarship in the longstanding discipline of employment relations.” It comprises five thematic sections:
- Perspectives on employment relations;
- Actors in employment relations;
- Core employment relations processes and issues;
- Broadening employment relations;
- Contemporary reflections and future challenges
The third section, Core employment relations processes and issues, includes
- “Collective bargaining,” by CIRHR professor Dionne Pohler;
- “Knowns and unknowns in the study of workplace dispute resolution: towards an expanded research agenda,” by Alex Colvin (MIR 1995 and co-editor of the collection) and Ariel C. Avgar;
- “A pacified labour? The transformation of labour conflict,” by Lorenzo Frangi, Sung-Chul Noh, and Robert Hebdon (CIRHR PhD 1992).
A copy of the book is available now in the CIRHR Library (catalogue link to be added once created).
