COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AND TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE IN AMERICAN TRANSPORTATION

The authors have attempted to show the differences in the impact of technology among transportation industry subsectors, the significance of institutional arrangements and the workability of collective bargaining under difficult circumstances. In addressing the problem of whether employment problems generated by technological change can be resolved through collective bargaining, each author deals with a different segment of transportation. The result is generally similar treatment of what has occurred in trucking, railroading, the maritime industry, and the airline flight deck. The generally quiet bargaining of trucking contrasts sharply with the stormy experience in the railroad and maritime industries with their economically troubled companies, technical innovation, and numerous craft unions bargaining individually.
