ILR School faculty – among the leading experts on collective bargaining and labor-management relations — will share their insights and talk about the potential impacts of these ongoing disputes during this Live Webcast.
* Dean Katz will provide historical perspective drawing from research he has done on taxpayer revolts in the 1970s and their impact on local government bargaining.
* Professors Hurd and Givan, active in media discussions and labor research, will help clarify the issues and what’s at stake for public employees and their unions, government, and the public.”
