Labor's 'New Star': Wisconsin's Public Sector Labor Statute and the Transformation of American Labor Relations

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper studies the decade-long fight to pass the first state collective bargaining law for public employees in Wisconsin, ending with a statute in 1959 and amendments in 1962. The battle to pass the law is an instructive tale of American politics, involving rival interest groups, reconstituted political parties, and the significant role of state structure. Further, a result of the law was a tidal wave of state public sector labor laws in the 1960s that finally allowed government employees to organize unions and, in many cases, to bargain collectively. These laws in turn led to a massive expansion of public sector unionism, thus substantially changing the nature of the American labor movement and American politics.
