From the abstract:
“As states dream up budget plans for a new year, some find themselves staring at deficits in the billions of dollars, vanishing federal stimulus funds, mounting health care costs, their own struggling cities and a canyon of underfunded pension liabilities ahead.” This quotation captures in a nutshell the serious problems confronting all public sector attorneys who represent management and labor, or who serve as neutrals. We are at a significant turning point in public sector collective bargaining. It is thus an opportune time to review the rise of public sector collective bargaining, to assess where we are at present, and to take a look at the future of public sector collective bargaining.
