Summers led a panel of experts in the initial discussion and orientation about municipal unions. Randall J.

The second panel, “The Impact of Municipal Unions on a City,” addressed city management issues and differing perspectives on the economics of municipal unions and their cities. The final panel of practitioners took on the topic “States and Their Municipal Unions,” speaking specifically about what the takeover by Pennsylvania of the Philadelphia School System might mean to municipal unions, and the future of City/Union relations. The symposium was organized by Executive Symposium Editor Vijay Kapoor L’02.
