The Sydney Employment Relations Research Group (SERRG), the Journal of Industrial Relations (JIR) and the Australian Labour and Employment Relations Association (ALERA) are pleased to host this Webinar to formally launch the Journal of Industrial Relations’ Annual Review of Australian Industrial Relations.
We are pleased to invite you to the IRSV's annual Patron's Night Dinner. The Patron's Night Dinner immediately follows the IRSV AGM and is a wonderful opportunity to relax amongst friends and colleagues about 'the year that was' over a meal and drinks.
With a rapidly changing workforce being reshaped by developments such as the gig economy, new forms of collective worker representation are emerging. Apart from unions and formal collective bargaining structures, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) have become a significant force in US industrial relations. These NGOs include worker rights groups, worker and immigrant rights centres, other organisations and affinity groups in non-union employers. What is the influence and staying power of such alternative forms of collective representation? And are there lessons for Australian governments, regulators, employers and unions? Renowned US expert and Cornell University Professor Harry C Katz will explore such questions in his keynote address at the next Joe Isaac Symposium.
