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.

"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
