Developing a Comprehensive Employee Relations/Human Resources Management Program for Government Agencies. McGinnis, William.

Although the last decade has seen a national decline in the percentage of the American work force that is unionized, public sector unions have continued to make recruitment gains. In the opinion of management consultant William J. McGinnis, Jr. government agencies themselves are partially to blame because deficiencies in, or the nonexistence of, their employee relations programs are forcing many of their workers to seek outside representation by labor unions. The author offers government managers some "how to" advice in Developing a Comprehensive Employee Relations/Human Resources Management Program for Government Agencies for correcting that oversight and maintaining a nonunion work environment.
