SECTION OF LABOR AND EMPLOYMENT LAW OF THE AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION * 1155 EAST 60TH STREET, CHICAGO, ILLINOIS 60637


HIGHLIGHTS OF COUNCIL MEETINGS


           OSHA and EEO Books
At its Midwinter Meeting in Santo Domingo the Coun-
cil gave preliminary approval in principle to a proposal
by the Committee on Occupational Safety and Health
concerning the production by the OSHA Committee of
a book to be of the same quality as The Developing
LaborLaw, but dealingwith all aspects of OSHA. Com-
mittee Co-Chairmen Horace Thompson and James
English are working closely with the Council on prelim-
inary details. A special Council Committee was ap-
pointed at the Honolulu meeting to draw up prelimi-
nary plans for a similar treatise or supplement dealing
with Equal Employment Opportunity Law. Both of
these books would be first quality works and, together
with The Developing Labor Law, would provide the
cornerstone of a basic labor and employment relations
law library.


    New Section Standing Committees
In recognition of the ever-changing field of labor rela-
tions, the Council unanimously adopted a resolution
to establish an ad hoc committee on amendments to
Section 301 of the National Labor Relations Act con-
cerning breach of duty of fair representation actions.
This committee would concern itself with the duty
of fair representation and legislation in the field.
William Isaacson, David Feller and Lester Asher have
been named as co-chairmen, and Mary Ellen Krug,
Robert Segal, Thomas E. Lippard and Robert H.
Bogucki, as members of this ad hoc committee.
  The Council also considered and deferred action un-
til its next meeting on the question of establishing a new
standing committee concerning Employment Rights in
the Absence of Union Representation. This fast grow-
                      (continued on next page)


CHAIRMAN'S COMMENT    I


It is hard to believe that this past year has moved so
quickly. In these past eight months since I became
Chairman at the Honolulu meeting, our Section has
continued to grow in a dynamic
fashion. Several of our standing
committees are preparing pro-
posals for the Council's consid-
eration concerning the prepara-
tion and publication of labor        .
law treatises similar to The
Developing Labor Law but cov-
ering equal employment oppor-
tunity, OSHA, and pension
areas. Our Committee on Insti- Robert J. Connerton
tutes and Meetings, ably chaired by Harry Keaton
and Bob Pleasure, has just completed a most success-
ful program in Washington on employee rights in the
work place. They are hard at work now putting the
finishing touches on what should be an outstanding
meeting in New Orleans, August 10-12. OurJulyNews-
letter will contain the full program for our Annual
Meeting. I urge those of you who have not yet completed

your New Orleans travel arrangements to do so im-
mediately.
  The most recent tabulation from ABA head-
quarters in Chicago shows that our membership is fast
approaching 12,000, including student members. Al-
though our financial picture continues to improve, we
must continue to make every effort to hold the line
against inflation-fueled cost increases.
  The Section's work on the second edition of The
Developing Labor Law is nearing completion. Messrs.
Bioff, Cohen, King and Powell are working closely
with Professor Charles Morris and their Board of
Editors in a concentrated effort to meet the targeted
fall 1981 publication date.
  I believe that by August, when I will be turning over
the gavel to Chairman-Elect Charles G. Bakaly, I will
have fulfilled my personal priorities of keeping the Sec-
tion on a steady financial keel; establishing a closer
relationship between the Council and the Section com-
mittees; insuring that all of our committees are active;
and exploring exciting new areas for the Section in its
Institutes and Annual Meeting programs.
