Conference Description

The place to learn is where the teachers are among the top tier of labor arbitrators, the materials tackle the tough issues, the key questions are answered, and the instruction is practical so you can put the training to use.

Come to Minneapolis this fall, and learn the latest developments in labor law and labor arbitration.

Still another reason to attend is the faculty. All have wide experience as labor arbitrators and recognized skills as teachers.
