"Labour relations in the public elementary and secondary school system is a vital area of Canadian public policy with important direct and indirect effects on society. However, at many times and in many jurisdictions, teacher bargaining has been regarded as profoundly unsuccessful. Taking an inter-provincial comparative approach, Dynamic Negotiations identifies potential avenues of reform. Academic and legal experts describe and analyse the history, current structure, and functioning of bargaining in public elementary and secondary schools in six key jurisdictions - Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and Newfoundland - representing a spectrum of approaches. This is a vital area of public policy that is much discussed but not well enough understood. The volume is a valuable resource for policy-makers, academics, and practitioners in education and labour relations."--Publisher.
