“Seven Basic Principles of Just Cause” Presentation, by Robert M. Schwartz – Robert Schwartz is a labor lawyer and Labor Guild instructor. He is the author of numerous popular handbooks including Just Cause: A Union Guide to Winning Discipline Cases (available at the workshop at the special price of $10.00).
“Building a Campaign for Just Cause for All” Discussion, led by Rand Wilson – Rand Wilson is the Communications Director at SEIU 888 and a Labor Guild instructor. He is a longtime labor organizer and is currently involved with Our Revolution– working to fix our rigged economy and broken political system.

Description:

One of the greatest achievements of the union movement is forcing employers to agree to contract clauses guaranteeing just-cause protections. This differentiates union-represented workers from the wider workforce, which is chained to the employee-at-will rule.

All union representatives and active union members should be well-versed on the elements of just cause.

This workshop will feature a presentation on the “Seven Basic Principles of Just Cause” by Robert Schwartz, and will be followed by a discussion entitled “Building a Campaign for Just Cause for All,” led by Rand Wilson.

Among the important concepts that will be discussed are: lax enforcement, disparate treatment, mitigating circumstances, extenuating circumstances, progressive discipline, double jeopardy, and due process.
