LERA National Policy Forum Set for June 11-12 in Washington, D.C.
Date:6/4/2009

"New Frontiers in Labor and Employment Relations: Ensuring Good Jobs, Fair Treatment, and High Performance in a Turbulent Economy"

WASHINGTON, June 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Policy Forum, sponsored by the Labor and Employment Relations Association on June 11-12, 2009, features the top UAW and Ford negotiators and other leading experts on the auto crisis, top national experts on health care financing, a new framework for executive compensation, informed assessment of infrastructure investments and green jobs, balanced perspectives on union organizing, and more. Keynote presenters include Secretary of Labor Solis, AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Richard Trumka, Major League Baseball President and COO Robert DuPuy, and leading labor economist Lisa Lynch.

"At a time of fundamental change in labor and employment relations," said LERA President Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld, dean of the School of Labor and Employment Relations at the University of Illinois, "this event is the single most important gathering of scholars, union leaders, managers, government officials and neutrals on the policy challenges facing our nation - framing debates, advancing knowledge, and enabling progress."

Hosted by George Washington University at the Cafritz Conference Center in Washington D.C. the 2009 Labor and Employment Relations Association National Policy Forum theme signals what may be an end to over two decades of gridlock on a broad range of labor and employment policy issues and explores new frontiers in labor and employment policy. This year's Policy Forum will have a particular focus on policy issues around union organizing, pension and health care benefits, and other issues for which legislative debates are anticipated and where public policy can be informed by scholarly research and practitioner perspectives. The Forum will also consider state and industry-level challenges in rebuilding the American Dream and surface deeper underlying assumptions about the workforce, unions, employers and other stakeholders.

Featuring Blue Ribbon Panels on:

Health Care and Pensions

The Role of Government in the Auto Industry

Training and Skill Development

Federal Sector Labor Relations

Union Organizing and Collective Bargaining

Infrastructure Investments and Green Jobs

Executive Compensation
