I came to academia after working the private sector for seventeen years.  I was also a volunteer union activist during that time.  I have long been interested in how the modern workplace developed.  My recent publications have focused on the development of management in post-World War II Canada, and also on management interaction with unions.  My first book was a case study of a large composite local union in Canada from 1950 to 1990.
