Where are the books on doing research in support of a union organizing campaign?

I am looking for books, articles, courses, or other materials on doing research in support of union organizing campaigns.

I have found plenty of information on the "organizing" side of the equation, but I have not had much luck finding resources specifically on doing research in support of organizing (on companies, investors, sectors, markets, etc., that are targets of a campaign).

I know that the big unions have a lot of people who do just this kind of research for a living, so there must be something out there, but I am having a hard time finding it.

Use the phrase "strategic corporate research" in your search and you will a lot of resources.

Try contacting the TUC or the General Federation of Trades Unions. I know they're British, but I imagine they'd be happy to help you in some way, or point you in the right direction. Solidarity and all that. Or maybe your country has something similar.
