Canadian Labour Reporter Special Report: Out of the Mist: Understanding Canadian Labour Relations Strategy

This unique book covers the theory and foundation concepts of labour relations strategy. Labour relations strategy is all about developing an effective organizational culture and the employee relations climate to achieve the overall business objectives. The authors explore various themes by borrowing from several disciplines and applying relevant concepts to the labour relations context. The book takes a collaborative view of the subject in spite of the adversarial nature of traditional labour relations. The authors have structured the book around the Buddhist parable of searching for the Ox to make it more interesting and to help describe strategic thought as a journey. The book is written for anyone who is in, or aspires to be in, a strategic role with responsibilities for the management of people (especially in a unionized environment or one that could potentially become unionized). This includes senior executives, HR practitioners, labour relations specialists and people in general management roles. The book seeks to inspire them to think strategically about the practice of labour relations and to ensure they have a labour relations strategy that creates and sustains competitive advantage for their organization and creates shared value for multiple stakeholders.
