    A Review of Trade Union Organizing In The Informal Economy - The purpose of this report is to review the existing literature on efforts throughout the globe by workers who labor outside the formal labor and employment relations policy framework of their country to form or join trade unions as well as unions’ efforts to organize and represent them. View all reports for the five-year research partnership with the Solidarity Center

    Healing Together: The Labor-Management Partnership at Kaiser Permanente, co-authored with Tom Kochan, Bob McKersie (both from MIT) and Paul Adler (USC). The book is based on years of research with Kaiser and its unions. As John Paul McDuffie’s blurb on the back of the book says, “Healing Together’s clear-eyed view of the ever-present perils and potential payoffs for all parties makes this the most comprehensive and valuable account of labor-management innovation in years – and just in time, as the nation turns to the twin challenges of reforming both labor relations and health care.”

    Adrienne E. Eaton and Jill Kriesky, “NLRB Elections versus Card Check Campaigns: Results of a Worker Survey”, January 2009 issue of Industrial and Labor Relations Review. The study makes an important contribution to the current debate around the Employee Free Choice Act, finding that workers themselves report much more pressure from employers to oppose the union in both elections and card campaigns than pressure from union representatives to support the union in card check campaigns.

    Organizational Change at SEIU- Authors:  Adrianne Eaton, Ph.D, Janice Fine, Ph.D,  Saul Rubenstein, Ph.D, Allison Prter, MSOD. (1996-2009)

    Since the election of Andy Stern in 1996, SEIU has doubled its membership, built a powerful political machine, and become a major force for progressive change. 

    This article is a reflection on the enormity of the changes they had made, the leaders of SEIU decided to commission an independent study of their organization from the time the current administration took office to the present.  We took on that task in 2006 and completed it in the summer of 2009.

  • Expertise

    - Negotiation, effectiveness and outcomes of neutrality and card check agreements
