The Taylor Law in Perspective at 50

September 26, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Mark your calendar for September 26, 2017, when Roosevelt House at Hunter College will host public policy programming that will examine public sector collective bargaining.

2017 marksĀ the 50th anniversary of the Public Employees Fair Employment Act, commonly known as the Taylor Law. This New York law was one of the first state laws to grant public workers the right to unionize, to require public employers and unions to bargain in good faith over working conditions, and to mandate conciliation of bargaining impasses.

In conjunction with Hunter’s National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education and the Professions and the Joseph S. Murphy Institute for Worker Education and Labor Studies, Roosevelt House will sponsor a series of panels and conversations examining the Taylor Law in historical context, and exploring the future of public sector unionization and collective bargaining. We hope you can join us.

September 26, 2017; 2:00pm-9:00pm
Roosevelt House, Hunter College
47-49 East 65th Street
New York, NY 10065

Online registration is required, please RSVP here
