Labor-management relations have traditionally been viewed as "closed systems," quite apart from the communities in which the parties exist. This study demonstrates that the relationships actually are in part a product of environmental influences over which the parties have little control. (The study excludes teachers.) This study pinpoints some of the specific factors that may affect public sector bargaining.
