LERA 58th Annual Meeting
The January 2006 Labor and Employment Relations Association (new name for the IRRA) meeting in Boston will inaugurate a new era for the association-a new name, a new sense of mission for a new century. President Stephen R. Sleigh has selected a theme for this conference that seeks to link our future to our past by expressly looking at the relationship between labor and capital in the 21st century. The use of the word "capital" is not confined to financial instruments but rather seeks to include work on human capital, how skills and abilities add value to organizations; and social capital, how the interaction of people within an organization creates wealth. There is also an interest in financial capital, particularly how public and worker financial assets can be used to create better performing organizations and economies from both social and economic points of view. Issues related to corporate governance, proxy voting, new forms of corporate ownership, profit sharing and employee ownership, and creative labor-management responses to industry restructuring all would fit in this category.
