Emerging Labor Market Institutions for the Twenty-First Century

Private sector unionism is in decline in the United States. As a result, labor advocates, community groups, nongovernmental organizations, and individuals concerned with the well-being of workers have sought to develop alternative ways to represent workers' interests. Emerging Labor Market Institutions for the Twenty-First Century provides the first in-depth assessment of how effectively labor market institutions are responding to this drastically altered landscape.This important volume provides case studies of new labor market institutions and new directions for existing institutions. The contributors examine the behavior and impact of new organizations that have formed to solve workplace problems and to bolster the position of workers. They also document how unions employ new strategies to maintain their role in the economic system. While non-union institutions are unlikely to fillthe gap left by the decline of unions, the findings suggest that emerging groupsand unions might together improvesome dimensions of worker well-being.Emerging Labor Market Institutions is the story of workers and institutions in flux, searching for ways to represent labor in the new century.
