City Unions: Managing Discontent in New York City

Front Cover
Rutgers University Press, 1987 - Business & Economics - 221 pages
This concise history of New York City municipal unions makes a persuasive case that union leadership in NYC has often behaved like a junior partner in the management structure by conceding to City demands (oftentimes over the protest of the membership); by excluding the rank and file from decision-making; by doing management's job of enforcing workplace discipline; and by undermining and marginalizing militants within the ranks.
