International Committee Breakfast Meeting Friday, July 31, 8:00 – 10:30 a.m. Sheraton Chicago * Mayfair Room
The International Labor and Employment Committee is hosting our annual breakfast meeting where attendees are asked to provide short presentations on issues relating to the area of international labor and employment law with a particular emphasis on more recent issues which have touched or dealt with the issue of international labor and employment law. One recent example which will be discussed will be the Supreme Court of Canada case which has held that the right to strike is constitutionally guaranteed under the Canadian constitution. While this decision may seem, at first glance, to be limited to Canada, the language of the Court raises very interesting issues for labor/management attorneys across the globe especially in light of the EU's free trade agreements now signed with Canada (CETA) and being negotiated with the USA (T-TIP). This will challenge us all in the months and years to come.
We ask those who wish to present during the breakfast to send their suggested topic to our chair of the breakfast, Pascal Rochefort. Pascal will take your topic and advise as to whether both the topic and you have been selected to speak. As spaces are limited, you are asked to provide your suggested topic as soon as possible.
