JOINT LABOR-MANAGEMENT MEETINGS IN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT: RESULTS FROM SIX SITES
JAMES E. MARTIN
AbstractTop level federal joint labor-management meetings were studied at six sites as part of a multiple-case study of federal labor relations. Differences in collective bargaining frameworks between the federal and private sectors appeared to contribute to a higher prevalence of these meeting in the federal sector than in the private sector. The effectiveness of the meetings was found to be correlated with other organizational and labor relations variables. In addition, internal factors of the meetings were related to their effectiveness, including the use made any information exchanged and the type of topics discussed.
