LSTU-L 290 Labor Issues on College Campuses, Class Number 18549, 1
cr., Class meets Monday, 5:45-8:25 pm, PY101, October 30, November
6, 13, 27 and December 4.  The importance of organized labor on
college campuses is on the rise. Faculty, students, and university
employees bring unique labor issues to the table, making the
dynamics on campus unlike any setting in the private sector. We will
examine labor issues that impact campuses directly such as graduate
student organization, apparel contracts, faculty government, anti-
union tactics employed by administrators, and effective models of
university-labor cooperation. As well, we will look at student
participation in broader workers' rights movements. The goal of the
course is to better understand the wide variety of issues, groups
and interests come together on campus to create a singular labor
environment.  Instructor: Ed Burmila, Political Science, IUB.
