Labor–Management Partnerships for Public Transportation, Volume 2: Final Report

TCRP Report 181: Labor–Management Partnerships for Public Transportation is a two-volume report that provides resources for public transportation management and labor union leaders to establish, manage, and improve labor–management partnerships. Volume 1: Toolkit encompasses three major components: (1) the development of a labor–management partnership charter to start or improve a partnership; (2) labor–management partnership guidance that provides specific recommended actions for both management and labor union leaders; and (3) a labor–management partnership workshop framework that can be used to develop a cooperative workshop that prepares management and union representatives with essential skills for establishing and managing labor–management partnerships. This volume, Volume 2: Final Report, provides background material that was used to develop the Toolkit. To meet the project objectives, the research team conducted a literature review; extensive surveys of transit managers and labor union leaders in the United States to gather facts and data on success factors and barriers of labor–management partnerships; six in-depth case studies of selected transit systems with successful labor–management partnerships; and a workshop of labor union representatives and managers with experience in labor–management partnerships.
