Effective March 16, 2020, the educational programs scheduled to be delivered at our New York City facility will be moved to virtual delivery, where possible, or rescheduled. For those programs that do not lend themselves to a distance-education format, we will postpone them until we receive guidance from the University and public health officials that it is safe to hold those programs in-person. Please contact ilrcustomerservice@cornell.edu with any questions. We will provide updates as they become available from the University.

Schedule & Details

Course

This class is designed to provide union members, officers, and staff with a working knowledge of the operations and impact of corporate globalization, especially as it relates to labor-management relations. The course aims at detecting and refuting the myths about corporate globalization which are too often spread through major media and prominent political leaders of both major political parties.

LS 203 will enable participants in the class to gain a clear overview of corporate globalization and the inequality it fosters, and to concisely explain to union members and the general public the impact of corporate globalization both in specific local situations (for example, the threatened relocation of a plant), global capital flows, and the shaping of the increasingly unequal US economy.
