Turning the Tables: Participation and Power in Negotiations, forthcoming from Jane McAlevey, Abby Lawlor, and the UC Berkeley Labor Center, illustrates best practices for building the power to win in today’s challenging union climate.
The report features a series of case studies in collective bargaining during the four years under Trump. They cover four key employment sectors: teachers, nurses, hotel workers, and journalists. In each case, workers used high transparency and high participation approaches in contract campaigns to build worker power. Each victory points a path to raising workers expectations of what is possible to win at the negotiations table today.
