Synopsis: This book is a memoir by a major figure in U.S. industrial relations and labor law. Benjamin Aaron was on the UCLA faculty for half a century and played a prominent role in public service as well, both nationally and in southern California. This well-written and action-packed memoir, published shortly after the author's death in 2007, is an engaging account of half a century of U.S. labor relations history.
About the Author: Professor Aaron joined the UCLA Institute of Industrial Relations in 1946, and in 1960, became its director, a position he held for fifteen years. During World War II, he spent four years as a staff member and executive director of the National War Labor Board, and briefly served on the labor advisory commission to the Supreme Commander, Allied Powers, in Tokyo. He served on a number of panels, boards and commissions as appointee of Presidents Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson and Bush (Sr.).
Throughout his esteemed professional lifetime and career, Aaron was appointed to faculty and had been a resident fellow at the finest universities and centers throughout the world. He was with the UCLA Law School since 1960. His contributions to the school, to hundreds of students over the years and to all who had the great honor to know him personally are part of the legacy of his lifelong commitment and passion.
During his 60 year association with UCLA he authored many books and scores and scores of important articles. Ben was a scholar of enormous authority and influence, said Michael Schill, Dean of UCLA's Law School. At the age of 91, Ben was still an active and engaged scholar.
Presidents Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Bush (Sr.) have appointed him to various panels, boards, and commissions, including a statutory arbitration board to resolve the work-rules dispute on the nation's railroads and the National Commission on Technology, Automation, and Economic Progress. Since 1946, Professor Aaron has served as an arbitrator of labor disputes in virtually every major industry.
Professor Aaron has twice been appointed to the faculty of the Salzburg Seminar in American Studies, and has been a resident fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, a visiting fellow at Clare Hall, University of Cambridge, England, a Phi Beta Kappa visiting scholar, and a visiting fellow at the School of Law, Australian National Univerisity. He is past president of the National Academy of Arbitrators, the Industrial Relations Research Association, and the International Society of Labor Law and Social Security; he is a former member of the ILO Committee of the Experts on the Application of Conventions and Recommendations. In 1981, he was the recipient of the American Arbitration Association's Distinguished Service Award. In 1996, he was elected a charter emeritus member of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers.
