Winter 2018 quarter
In this course, we will explore general labor relations concepts as well as specific provisions of Washington State public sector labor relations law. We will examine labor relations from the establishment of union representation, through the collective bargaining process and the administration and enforcement of union contracts. We will focus on subjects of bargaining, discipline of union-represented employees, and unfair labor practices. We will also discuss and critique the policy choices embodied in current labor law, as well as explore likely future changes to the law and possible consequences. The goal of this course is for students to gain a framework for understanding labor relations concepts to prepare for future work in areas relating to public sector labor relations in Washington.
