Description: "[This] text, which is one of the few examinations of the impact of unions on workers and the workplace in academic libraries, does offer, initially, a sound methodological approach. Kusack starts with a brief, but reasonably thorough, history of library unions. He next reviews the literature on the effects of collective bargaining with an emphasis on its impact in academic institutions and academic libraries in particular. He then reports on the results of a specific study of support staff in unionized and non-unionized academic libraries in mid-1983. That study compared compensation and selected employment policies and practices as well as personnel and budget characteristics in the two settings. As one of the first statistical examinations of academic library union issues, Kusack's effort provides some useful information. His primary conclusion is that the data show no statistical evidence of differences in the characteristics studied in unionized or non-unionized academic libraries." Wilson Library Bulletin
