Workers' Rights as Human Rights. (January, 2004)
Edited by James A. Gross.
"Until recently, the international human rights movement and nongovernmental organizations, humanrights 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' human 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 workers' rights as human rights in the United States." [from the dust jacket]
