Labor and Employment Program
NUSL's annual Labor and Employment Program took place on Thursday, December 5, 2013.
Janis Barquist '78, who represents the City of Los Angeles, spoke about the expansive view California courts are taking regarding what topics may be subject to collective bargaining. Because the Boston City Council approved the contract just days prior, Tim Buckalew '80, who issued the recent Boston Police interest arbitration award, and Susan Horowitz '84, who represented the Police Union, were able to provide first-hand insights into the process and substance that led to the much-talked about award. James Weliky '95 and Jaclyn Kugell '92 gave us an in depth look at implicit bias and the attendees were involved in an interactive demonstration about implicit bias.
Mark Irvings '75 served as moderator for both panels.
