Unions in Dispute

Nelson Lichtenstein, MacArthur Foundation Professor in History and director of the Center for the Study of Work, Labor and Democracy at UCSB, contributed his labor history expertise to the national discussion on unions in response to the Wisconsin protests against proposed legislation that would weaken unions’ collective bargaining rights. In addition to sharing his knowledge with various media outlets, Lichtenstein also published two recent opinion pieces on the topic.
