CIHLER: PROTECTING AND ASSISTING WORKERS IN THE MIDST OF A PANDEMIC Labor-Management Solutions
April 20, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDTFree
The current COVID-19 crisis has raised issues regarding how workers in the hospitality sector are assisted if they are laid off and protected if they remain on the job. What measures are being — or still need to be — adopted? How can collective negotiations and government support combine to provide what is necessary?
Cornell University’s ILR School, School of Hotel Administration, and Center for Innovative Hospitality Labor and Employment Relations (CIHLER) will bring together both union and management leaders as well as a public policy expert to clarify productive answers to the challenges that have emerged.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
– What unions are asking hotels and restaurants to provide in the form of income support and health and safety protections
– Steps that have already been taken to support hospitality employees
– How government income support and health and safety protections can mesh with collectively bargained initiatives
– How the crisis might stimulate a new spirit of cooperation between labor and management
