DESCRIPTION

 For more than 40 years, practitioners have relied on The Developing Labor Law: The Board, the Courts, and the National Labor Relations Act to keep them current on U.S. labor law. This two-volume treatise, written by distinguished members of the ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law representing management, labor, and neutrals, is the essential research tool for labor and employment law practitioners. It provides an authoritative, balanced perspective on the legal rights and duties of employees, employers and unions, as well as procedures and remedies under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). 

The Sixth Edition was published in 2012 and much has happened since. Significantly, the Supreme Court's decision in NLRB v. Noel Canning has voided much of the work of the "recess Board" in 2012 and 2013.
