Those of you you read the post below on the NYU-UAW deal may have noticed in the embedded link some quotes from friend-of-the-blog, Bill Herbert. In doing so, you mave noticed that he has a new affiliation as he's just moved from the NYPERB to the National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education and the Professions, where he is now serving as Executive Director. He'll also be a Distinguished Lecturer at Hunter College. Here's a press release on the move:
Effective November 21, 2013, Bill Herbert was appointed as a Distinguished Lecturer at Hunter College, City University of New York and as the new Executive Director of the National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education and the Professions. Prior to his recent appointment, Bill was Deputy Chair and Counsel at the New York State Public Employment Relations Board.
For over four decades, the National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education and the Professions has served as a national labor-management center dedicated to studying the use of collective bargaining for advancing higher education and the working conditions of faculty and staff in colleges and universities. The National Center believes that the study of collective bargaining is essential for a knowledge-based dialogue concerning labor-management and educational issues, and is critically important for reasoned societal debate that will lead to social progress. It is comprised of labor and management professionals, practitioners, and scholars interested in studying contemporary and historical labor-management issues, best practices in collective bargaining, legal and legislative developments, and public support for higher education. It provides a clearinghouse and forum for scholarly research and ideas concerning labor relations, collective bargaining and labor law issues related to higher education. The National Center will be holding its 41st annual conference on April 6-8, 2014 at the CUNY Graduate Center: http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/ncscbhep The theme of the conference is Achieving Successful Results in Higher Education through Collective Bargaining.
