The debates in Wisconsin, Indiana and Ohio and across the country have brought issues surrounding public employees’ rights and the tensions that can exist between public sector unions and government into the national spotlight.

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.

Participants can submit questions during the webcast and hear panelists’ responses in real time.
