Labor Studies & Employment Relations


Our faculty members are leading researchers nationally and internationally in the field of labor and employment relations. We conduct rigorous research and publish findings that assist workers, unions, labor-related organizations, and policymakers to respond to emerging labor, employment, and collective bargaining issues. We also undertake research projects on a contract basis for unions and labor-related organizations.
