Work stoppages involving professional sports, whether caused by the players going on strike or the owners imposing a lockout, are by their very nature contentious and not always resolved quickly or easily. Major League Baseball has experienced the greatest number of work stoppages (eight), followed by the NFL (five), NHL (four), and NBA (two). While both NBA work stoppages were lockouts, the other three leagues have experienced a combination of strikes and lockouts. Major League Baseball has had five strikes and three lockouts, and the NHL one strike and three lockouts. This book provides an examination of the circumstances of each strike followed by a table that identifies relevant legislative measures, and an overview of Congressional comments and report language regarding the strike, which were drawn from hearings and reports, and remarks made on the House or Senate floor. This information shows the extent of actual, or intended, congressional involvement and how some members viewed congressional involvement in the strike, and a discussion of antitrust exemptions applicable to professional sports is also included.

Collected here, for the first time, are more than 100 essays written between 1998 and 2006 on the sports industry by one of the nation's leading sports economists. Provocative, fact-filled, and tightly argued, these essays are essential reading for every sports fan. They delve into some of the most important sports business issues of the last fifteen years, including the financing of new stadiums, the financial value of professional teams, revenue sharing programs, the flaws in "competitive balance" plans, walkouts and lockouts, the cost of college sports programs, and the fallout from Congressional hearings on steroid use by professional athletes. Andrew Zimbalist writes with well-earned authority, and impressive ease, about the principal sports in the U.S.-major league baseball, basketball, hockey, and the NCAA. Along with being an unmatched "numbers guy," Zimbalist is clearly a sports fan himself. Even casual readers will find that their "sports I.Q." skyrockets after reading these perceptive, insightful essays.

Private-sector collective bargaining in the United States is under siege. Many factors have contributed to this situation, including the development of global markets, a continuing antipathy toward unions by managers, and the declining effectiveness of strikes. This volume examines collective bargaining in eight major industries—airlines, automobile manufacturing, health care, hotels and casinos, newspaper publishing, professional sports, telecommunications, and trucking—to gain insight into the challenges the parties face and how they have responded to those challenges.The authors suggest that collective bargaining is evolving differently across the industries studied. While the forces constraining bargaining have not abated, changes in the global environment, including new security considerations, may create opportunities for unions. Across the industries, one thing is clear—private-sector collective bargaining is rapidly changing.
