Labor Law Roundtable Tackles Union Issues

Paul Davies of the London School of Economics
Paul Davies of the London School of Economics makes a point during a labor law roundtable that focused on the state of unions in the United States and Great Britain.
LAST NOVEMBER’S Institute for Law and Economics Labor Law Roundtable brought together law professors, labor lawyers, members of the National Labor Relations Board, and labor union officials to discuss critical issues in labor relations. The day began with a presentation of a paper by William P. Johnson Professor of Law and Economics Michael Wachter titled “The Decline of Labor Unions in the United States.” A second talk was given by Professor John T. Addison of the Moore School of Business, University of South Carolina, titled “A Reduction in the Disadvantages of British Unionism?”

The afternoon panel discussion, moderated by Marshal B. Babson of Hughes, Hubbard & Reed LLP and Saul A. Fox Professor of Business Law Edward B. Rock L’83, dealt with the increasingly international nature of corporate labor relations and the problems unions and management face in the wake of international mergers and acquisitions.
