This third edition of this text examines the shift from consent towards coercion in the state's relationship to labour in Canada, and extends the analysis through the 1990s to the beginning of the 21st century. It contains two new chapters, one on coercion in the Chretien era and another which advances a strategy for labour movements to confront the difficult challenges facing working poeple today. Lists of legislation and all tables have been completely updated.
