Summary: Barack Obama's famous "Blueprint for Change," part and parcel of the campaignthat culminated in his historic election as U.S. president in November 2008,openly announced his support for the Employee Free Choice Act (H.R. 1409)suggesting that major change was imminent in U.S. labor and employment law.Although promised legislative change has yet to materialize, there appears tobe a growing consensus that the current system for addressing employmentdisputes in union-represented and non-union workplaces deserves renewedattention and needs significant restructuring. Thus, the issues taken up bythis prominent U.S. conference remain relevant to policy debates which willlikely continue to rage in the United States for years to come. Based onpapers delivered at the 2009 conference of the New York University School ofLaw's Center on Labor and Employment Law - the 62nd in this venerable andhighly influential series - the book presents articles updated by the authorsto reflect more recent developments, as well as new papers to ensure acomprehensive and current analysis of both what has actually changed and whichtrends seem to be gaining momentum. Twenty-two outstanding scholars andpractitioners in U.S. labor law and practice pay special attention to suchissues as the following:;mandatory arbitration of employment disputes in non-union sector;call for improved administration of the National Labor Relations Act inexpediting elections and reinstating discriminatees;more privatized forms of dispute resolution such as arbitration and mediation;card-check and neutrality agreements bypassing government processes;proposed reform of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act;evaluating market-based defenses to pay equity claims;EEOC initiatives in public enforcement of equality law; andchallenges to labor relations in state and local governments.As always, this important annual publication offers definitive currentscholarship in its theme area of labor and employment law.
