1.2108 The Relation of Job Satisfaction to Union Involvement.
Job satisfaction is one of those terms that might mean different things to different people. For some, there is no satisfaction in any kind of work. For others, all their personal dignity comes from their job. We can measure job satisfaction in terms of money, benefits, pension schemes, holiday bonuses. We can measure it in terms of the status the work confers on us or in the satisfaction we gain in performing a task well. A good employer will, of course, care about all of these issues. Productivity is, however, their main responsibility. At times, this sets up a conflict between worker's job satisfaction and employers' needs. This then is when unions appear most necessary. Their stated goal is to assure worker's rights, and create a decent working environment. Thus, job satisfaction does have an impact on union membership. 9 pgs. 16 f/c. 2b.

3.2722 Collective Bargaining and Contract Administration: Present and Future.
This paper will show that, while collective bargaining, and indeed organized labor at large, is being challenged, the demise of unionization is by no means a foregone conclusion. On the one hand, it is clear that the ongoing decline of importance in industrial sectors of the economy will continue to curtail union membership. The shift to a service based economy has induced vast declines in union memberships already, and will likely see them further decline in the future. On the other hand, authors have found the influence of globalization and economic restructuring on organized labor have been overstated and oversimplified. Thus in the end, the end of organized labor is not a foregone conclusion. The paper concludes with the idea that, if it is to survive or indeed experience a revival, collective bargaining and organized labor need to focus more on generating skills, fostering internal solidarity, and improving contract enforcement before their power will be returned. 11 pgs. 16 f/c. 7b.
