Changing Labour Markets: Implications for Industrial Relations

1998 Don Wood Lecture Series
Paula Voos
Professor in the School of Management and Labor Relations at Rutgers University

October 1, 1998

The Don Wood Lecture in Industrial Relations was established by friends of W. Donald Wood to honour his outstanding contribution to Canadian industrial relations. Dr Wood was Director of the Industrial Relations Centre from 1960 to 1985, and the first Director of the School of Industrial Relations, established in 1983. The lecture brings to Queen’s University distinguished individuals who have made an important contribution to industrial relations in Canada or other countries.

Professor Voos of the School of Management and Labor Relations at Rutgers University talks about markets; the revitalization of laissez-faire economics; how policy changes around unemployment insurance and wage standards, coupled with fundamental shifts in macroeconomic trade and regulatory policy have left workers more vulnerable; and how IR can contribute to improvements.
