Course Overview

The labor movement and allied organizations face a shortage of strategic researchers. This course aims to increase the supply of people who understand how to research corporate structure and power and develop union campaign strategies. Through hands-on research training, students learn how to investigate corporate ownership, finance, organization, and power. Students learn how to analyze the key relationships, profit centers, growth strategies, and key decision-makers that drive a particular corporation and shape its labor relations strategy. They also learn how unions can best respond to and capitalize on these characteristics through comprehensive organizing and bargaining campaigns.
