Public Sector Bargaining Around the World
On July 2, 2012, a one-day conference will be held in Philadelphia on public sector collective bargaining around the world. Leading scholars from the United States, Japan, France, Canada, Germany, Greece and Italy will discuss their public sector unions. Each country will be represented by a legal and a non-legal scholar. The conference has been organized by Matt Finkin from Illinois. Marty Malin from Chicago-Kent will be the legal scholar from the United States. The draft program is below.
This program is being sponsored by the US and Canadian Branches of the International Society for Labor and Social Security Law and by the International Association of Labour Law Journals. (By the way, you should join the US Branch of the ISLSSL: www.unl.edu/islssl. It’s inexpensive, includes a subscription to the Comparative Labor Law & Policy Journal, and provides great opportunities to network with overseas colleagues.) The program is being offered in conjunction with the 16th World Congress of the International Labour and Employment Relations Association, which will be in Philly from July 2-5. www.ilera2012.com. As a result, this will be a good set of events to meet lots of interesting people from around the world.
