Safety Management Systems in Aviation

Safety Management Systems in Aviation by Carl D. Mr Halford & John J. Mr Goglia & Alan J. Professor Stolzer

Although aviation is among the safest modes of transportation in the world today, accidents still happen. In order to further reduce accidents and improve safety, proactive approaches must be adopted by the aviation community. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has mandated that all of its member states implement Safety Management System (SMS) programs in their aviation industries. While some countries (the United States, Australia, Canada, members of the European Union and New Zealand, for example) have been engaged in SMS for a few years, it is still non-existent in many...

Diamonds in the Rough: Corporate Paternalism and African Professionalism on the Mines of Colonial Angola, 1917-1975

Diamonds in the Rough: Corporate Paternalism and African Professionalism on the Mines of Colonial Angola, 1917-1975 by Todd Cleveland

Diamonds in the Rough explores the lives of African laborers on Angola's diamond mines from the commencement of operations in 1917 to the colony's independence from Portugal in 1975. The mines were owned and operated by the Diamond Company of Angola, or Diamang, which enjoyed exclusive mining and labor concessions granted by the colonial government. Through these monopolies, the company became the most profitable enterprise in Portugal's African empire. After a tumultuous initial period, the company's mines and mining encampments experienced a remarkable degree of stability, in striking contrast...

Workplace Equality in Europe: The Role of Trade Unions by Dr. Anna Paraskevopoulou & Sonia Professor McKay

Drawing on data from a Europe wide project, together with existing data on equality and diversity initiatives, this book explores the work of trade unions in supporting equality and anti-discrimination policies across Europe and, in particular, the processes and collaborations involved in incorporating equality and diversity policies into trade union agendas. It considers theoretical issues of equality and diversity, the role of EU legislation, multiple discrimination and exclusion and disadvantage in the labour market in relation to the role of trade unions, and addresses central questions...

Market Expansion and Social Dumping in Europe

Market Expansion and Social Dumping in Europe by Magdalena BernaciakThe term 'social dumping' regularly appears in public debates and in policymaking circles. However, due to its ambiguity it is used in a manner that is convenient for individual discourse participants, thus opening the door for misconceptions and ill-grounded accusations. This book systematically examines social dumping in the context of the European integration process. It defines social dumping as the practice, undertaken by self-interested market participants, of undermining or evading existing social regulations with the aim of gaining a competitive advantage. It also shows how the two major...

Contagious Capitalism: Globalization and the Politics of Labor in China

Contagious Capitalism: Globalization and the Politics of Labor in China by Mary Elizabeth Gallagher

One of the core assumptions of recent American foreign policy is that China's post-1978 policy of "reform and openness" will lead to political liberalization. This book challenges that assumption and the general relationship between economic liberalization and democratization. Moreover, it analyzes the effect of foreign direct investment (FDI) liberalization on Chinese labor politics.

Market reforms and increased integration with the global economy have brought about unprecedented economic growth and social change in China during the last quarter of a century. Contagious Capitalism contends that...

Black and Blue: African Americans, the Labor Movement, and the Decline of the Democratic Party: African Americans, the Labor Mov

Black and Blue: African Americans, the Labor Movement, and the Decline of the Democratic Party: African Americans, the Labor Mov by Paul Frymer

In the 1930s, fewer than one in one hundred U.S. labor union members were African American. By 1980, the figure was more than one in five. Black and Blue explores the politics and history that led to this dramatic integration of organized labor. In the process, the book tells a broader story about how the Democratic Party unintentionally sowed the seeds of labor's decline.

The labor and civil rights movements are the cornerstones of the Democratic Party, but for much of the twentieth century these movements worked independently of one another. Paul Frymer argues that as Democrats passed separate...

But the United States Chamber of Commerce is a different animal altogether. The Chamber was originally founded to give big business a voice during the long—and now almost inconceivable—period in American history that saw the rise of workers' rights,...

Rocks in the Water, Rocks in the Sun: A Memoir from the Heart of Haiti

Rocks in the Water, Rocks in the Sun: A Memoir from the Heart of Haiti by Vilmond Joegodson D?ralcin? & Paul JacksonWhen Joegodson Déralciné was still a small child, his parents left rural Haiti to resettle in the rapidly growing zones of Port-au-Prince. As his family entered the city in 1986, Duvalier and his dictatorship exited. Haitians, once terrorized under Duvalier's reign, were liberated and emboldened to believe that they could take control of their lives. But how? Joining hundreds of thousands of other peasants trying to adjust to urban life, Joegodson and his family sought work and a means of survival. But all they found was low-waged assembly plant jobs of the sort to which the repressive Duvalier...

Increasing Motorcycle Conspicuity: Design and Assessment of Interventions to Enhance Rider Safety

Increasing Motorcycle Conspicuity: Design and Assessment of Interventions to Enhance Rider Safety by Lars R??gerHow driving simulation, field studies and laboratory experiments can be used to improve rider safety is illustrated in this text. It outlines the factors that contribute to the visibility of powered-two-wheelers (PTWs) and their detection by car drivers, and presents case studies to illustrate how the various methods can be used to explore the contribution of these factors. The final chapter highlights the utility of a simulation-based approach to improving PTW safety and discusses this method's future applications.

The book helps us begin to put not only movement, but also vision, back into the labor movement. There is a blossoming of rank-and-file worker organizations throughout the world that are countering rapacious capitalists and labor leaders who think they know more about work and struggle than their own members.

Collective Bargaining in the Public Sector: The Experience of Eight States: The Experience of Eight States

Collective Bargaining in the Public Sector: The Experience of Eight States: The Experience of Eight States by Joyce M. Najita & James L. SternUnlike Europe, where most public sector workers have long been included in collective bargaining agreements, the United States excluded public employees from such legislation until the 1960s and 70s. Since then, union membership in the U. S. has grown more rapidly among public workers than among workers in the private sector. This book provides up-to-date information on public sector collective bargaining in the United States today. The editors' seek to understand the real nature of PSB by examining eight states where the action is taking place -- California, Hawaii, Illinois, Michigan, New...

No Man's Land: Jamaican Guestworkers in America and the Global History of Deportable Labor: Jamaican Guestworkers in America and

No Man's Land: Jamaican Guestworkers in America and the Global History of Deportable Labor: Jamaican Guestworkers in America and by Cindy Hahamovitch

From South Africa in the nineteenth century to Hong Kong today, nations around the world, including the United States, have turned to guestworker programs to manage migration. These temporary labor recruitment systems represented a state-brokered compromise between employers who wanted foreign workers and those who feared rising numbers of immigrants. Unlike immigrants, guestworkers couldn't settle, bring their families, or become citizens, and they had few rights. Indeed, instead of creating a manageable form of migration, guestworker programs created an especially vulnerable class of labor....
