LSTU-L 290 Labor Issues on College Campuses 1 cr hr; Class Number
14963; 5:45-8:25  PM, Monday, WH007. This class meets March 26,
April 2, 9, 16 and 23. 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.
