Inhaltsangabe: Until recently, the international human rights movement and nongovernmental organizations, human rights scholars, and even labor organizations and advocates have given little attention to worker rights as human rights. James A. Gross finds, however, that employers, not just governments, have the power to violate workers’ rights.
Workers’ Rights as Human Rights provides a new perspective on the assessment of U.S. labor relations law by using human rights principles as standards for judgment. The authors also present innovative recommendations for what should and can be done to bring U.S. labor law into conformity with international human rights standards. This volume constitutes a long overdue beginning toward the promotion and protection of worker rights as human rights in the United States.
Umschlagtext: "James Gross’s introduction provides an excellent frame for discussion of workers’ rights. He points out the present-day need to defend workers’ rights and places the issue in a civil-rights context."—Clyde W. Summers, University of Pennsylvania
"Workers’ rights are crucial to human rights. Where the former are not existent or are weak, the latter are inevitably in jeopardy. This fine and long overdue book reveals the shameful distance between pretense and reality in respect to worker rights in the United States."—Julius Getman, Earl E. Sheffield Regents Chair, University of Texas School of Law
"If you don’t understand why the freedom to form unions and bargain collectively is, and should be, a fundamental human right—which the United States fails miserably to protect—then please read this important book."—Sheldon Friedman, Economist, AFL-CIO and Past President, Industrial Relations Research Association
