State of California Labor
Published for The University of California Institute for Labor and
Employment by the University of California Press
Published annually for the UC Institute for Labor and Employment (ILE), The
State of California Labor examines key developments affecting the California
workforce. In addition to including extensive discussion of recent trends in
employment and labor relations, the journal serves as a resource for labor
scholars, policy makers, union organizers, and others. The State of
California Labor is designed to inform public debate about critical issues
facing the Nation¹s bellwether state in the labor and employment domain.
The 2003 volume focuses on the recent rise in California's union membership
and union density, a development that defies the national trend and explodes
assumptions that the U.S. labor movement is in irreversible decline.
Contributors explore this reinvigoration of organized labor in California
and examine related issues.
