We sponsor a series of monthly
luncheons on crucial economic, legal, and social issues in
employer–employee relations. Thanks to our location, DC LERA
draws support from the Washington policy community, with
members and speakers from government, universities, unions,
think tanks, and policy advocate organizations. Our luncheon
programs offer great opportunities for labor relations
professionals, union leaders, policy specialists, scholars,
and students to express their views, enrich their knowledge
and expand their networks.
A special dimension of DC
LERA’s program is international labor relations. We are
honored and privileged that representatives of Washington’s
diplomatic delegations are active participants in our Chapter.
They learn, but they also give back. Attachés and counselors
give us inside views of labor relations in Asia and Europe.
