Labor Relations and the Future of Professional Baseball

Baseball is America’s pastime. Professional baseball has long provided a dynamic playing field for labor relations professionals who address a range of issues from contract negotiations to the sweep of labor management relationships and conflict, to the development of free agency and the maturation of the collective bargaining process. This conference brings together leading experts in the field to discuss a range of labor relations topics and their influence on the future of professional baseball.

William B. Gould IV,  Charles A. Beardsley Professor of Law, Emeritus, Stanford Law School; former Chairman, National Labor Relations Board; author, Bargaining with Baseball, Labor Relations in an Age of Prosperous Turmoil

“If Major League Baseball ever awarded a Nobel Peace Prize, it should go to Bill Gould for effectively ending baseball’s nuclear war, the strike of 1994-1995, during his tenure as NLRB chairman.  In his new book, the distinguished law professor has chronicled the game’s history of labor and racial relations from his unique perspective.”
