Tuesday, September 5, 2017 at 12:00pm


Professor Harry Katz Outlines Emerging Strategies

This webcast is free of charge and will be closed captioned.

Please join us at noon on Tuesday, Sept. 5, for a live-streamed conversation with Professor Harry Katz, lead author of "An Introduction to U.S. Collective Bargaining and Labor Relations, 5th Edition."

The textbook, written with Cornell Professor Alex Colvin and MIT Professor Tom Kochan, explores emerging and traditional domestic and international developments in collective bargaining and labor relations.

How management and unions strategize contract negotiations and administration and how those processes compare to non-union practices will be covered by Katz, director of ILR’s Scheinman Institute on Conflict Resolution and the school’s Jack Sheinkman Professor.

Income inequality, the public sector, labor rights in the global supply chain, the growing influence of NGOs and cross-national unionism are among topics covered in the book, published by Cornell University Press.

Join the conversation by submitting your questions online during the webcast, and Professor Katz will answer as many of them as possible.
