Political Life of a Public Employee Labor Union Regional Union Democracy
2001 0-7734-7672-5
This study examines the effects of the internal organizational structure on the actual process of decision-making on such issues as the raising of the per-capita tax, political endorsement of candidates running for public office, and the hiring and direction of permanent staff; the electoral process; the relationship between the regional union and its local unions and the national union. This work not only fills the void in scholarly publications on union political lives, but also contributes to our understanding of the effects of structure on process.
