We are committed to promoting constructive dialogue and action on issues of policy, practice, theory and research that lie at the intersection of the interests of labor, management, government, neutrals and scholars in the utilities industry.
Our overall focus is on workforce, organizational and regulatory challenges that face the utilities (Electric, Gas & Water) industry as a means to insure an adequate supply of energy and water resources in a reliable, secure and affordable manner over the long term for both the public and private sectors. Among some of the substantive issues to be addressed are:
(1) An examination of the current legal, political, structural and community barriers the Utilities Industry face in providing (a) low cost, (b) "clean" and environmentally sound, (c) reliable, (d) safe and (e) secure supplies of electricity, gas and water;
(2) The role labor-management relations can play in enhancing industry efficiency and productivity; and,
(3) The role of human resource management and labor-management relations in securing the safety of the network systems that transport energy resources.
