Professor Julius Getman to Discuss Restoring the Power of Unions at ACS event, November 4, 2010

University of Texas Law Professor Julius Getman, a preeminent scholar in the field of labor law, will speak about his new book on unions in America from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Law School’s Eidman Jury Room (CCJ 2.310) on Thursday, November 4, 2010.

The labor movement is weak and divided. Some think that it is dying. But in his book, Restoring the Power of Unions: It Takes a Movement, Getman examines recent developments to demonstrate that a resurgent labor movement is possible. He proposes new models for organizing and innovative techniques to strengthen strikes. Above all, Getman insists that unions must return to their historical roots as a social movement.

Sponsored by the American Constitution Society, the event is free and open to the public. Sandwiches and drinks will be provided.
