To begin, professor and LERA past president Tom Kochan and current LERA President Wilma Liebman will provide a quick tour of inflection points in US labor-management relations. They will ask whether there is a better way forward. Discussion will follow with three PhD candidates working on a major research project on the current landscape of worker activism, with expert commentary by Roy Bahat, head of venture capital firm Bloomberg Beta and Noam Scheiber, who covers workers and the workplace for The New York Times.


There is no charge, but we do ask that you register. We request that registered participants not share, forward, or post the webinar links and passwords to ensure the security of this webinar session. The Zoom link for the webinar will be sent to registered persons upon registration and also on the morning of the webinar.

Recordings or related files will be made available to registered attendees.


At the registration site, you will be asked to input your name, email, affiliation (university/organization/company), and optionally your job title and other information. You will then receive a confirmation email that will include a unique link and additional information to join the meeting.

Please do not distribute the link and information you will receive to attend the webinar to anyone, or post it in a public place. This discourages unknown individuals from joining the meeting with an intention to be disruptive.
