A collective bargaining agreement is a labor contract between an employer and one or more unions. As such, they provide a lasting record of important workplace issues including pay, benefits, and conditions of work. Until recently, researchers needing agreements could only access individual print copies by onsite visits to libraries with print collections, contacting the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, or by contracting with a private research service.
This digital resource provides scholars with the ability to conduct full text and metadata searches of agreements. The collection is presented as part of Catherwood Library’s ongoing mission to serve as a comprehensive information center in support of the research, instruction, and service commitments of the ILR School and Cornell community.
Our Labor Unions and the Internet guide provides a listing of other collective bargaining agreement collections.
