Labor Relations

This course explores the changing world of work in this country, particularly for those who spend their lives in offices, factories, and stores in non-managerial positions. The course examines the negotiation of pay and conditions in union and non-union settings. We also survey a range of contemporary labor issues, such as the rise of part-time and flexible work, work-family life issues, changing workforce demographics and the impact of technologies for surveillance and monitoring. We also consider the broader role of unions in politics and corporate governance from an international perspective.
