Abstract

Many factors that appear to affect collective bargaining have received no attention from researchers. This article identifies a number of these factors and explains how they may be affecting collective bargaining. In addition, it describes the methodologies that would be appropriate for researching specific issues. The areas of research identified are appropriate for either dissertation topics or faculty research across a wide range of social science disciplines. Taken together they comprise a comprehensive social science research agenda that can be used to understand how collective bargaining is faring today. An additional use for the research would be as part of the litigation strategy advanced in Ellen Dannin, Taking Back the Workers' Law: How to Fight the Assault on Labor Rights (Cornell University Press 2006).
