Seminar Paper


[Excerpt] There can be no disagreement with Professor Jensen's position that a belief in freedom is at the heart of our commitment to collective bargaining. These comments are a footnote to what he says about institutional accommodation and freedom in associations. My point is that acceptable "institutional accommodation" is achieved only when the institutions themselves do, in fact, offer choices to individuals and thus give freedom its essential meaning.
