Can anyone recommend any books for effectively managing organized labor? I am specifically interested in the following:
[list]building trust (which is currently non-existent)
I started working at a new company about 6 months ago, about the same time I discovered Manager Tools. I am 24 years old, and hope to have a long career at the company.
My new employer is a railroad, so most of the workforce is unionized, and can't be off-shored. At the same time, the organization is in desperate need of change, and labor-management relations are fraught with distrust. I saw [url=http://www.manager-tools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1087]Mark's response to a forum post[/url] regarding unions, and I would like to know how to implement the MT recommendations at a unionized shop.
I would be interested to read any books (or periodicals, or any other material) that you gurus can recommend.
