Institute has adopted a multi-pronged approach to promote its objectives.
It will fund research projects and will disseminate the results of these
studies through union and university publications as well as its own newsletter
and other publications. It will convene forums and conferences to discuss
the effect on working people and their labor unions of important public
policy issues such as the privatization of public services, immigration,
and citywide economic development.
At these conferences, research
and policy analyses, including those sponsored by the Institute, will be
shared with union, corporate and civic leaders. Graduate and undergraduate
students, as well as labor union members, officers, and staff, will be
encouraged to participate in this work through internship programs, fellowships,
and volunteer efforts. [More]
