TCRP Report 181: Labor–Management Partnerships for Public Transportation is a two-volume report that provides resources for public transportation management and labor union leaders to establish, manage, and improve labor–management partnerships. Volume 1: Toolkit encompasses three major components: (1) the development of a labor– management partnership charter to start or improve a partnership; (2) labor–management partnership guidance that provides specific recommended actions for both management and labor union leaders; and (3) a labor–management partnership workshop framework that can be used to develop a cooperative workshop that prepares management and union representatives with essential skills for establishing and managing labor–management partnerships. Volume 2: Final Report provides background material that was used to develop the Toolkit.
