Hartwig and Hardin Take Office

Bredhoff and Lesnick Designated


  At the Section's Annual Meeting held August 1-3
in Atlanta, Eugene L. Hartwig of Detroit, Michigan,
who was elected Chairman-Elect at the 1982 meeting
in San Francisco, took office as Chairman of the Sec-
tion; Professor Patrick Hardin of the University of
Tennessee College of Law in Knoxville became Sec-
tion Secretary; Elliot Bredhoff of Washington, D.C.,


was elected Chairman-Elect; and Howard Lesnick of
the New York University Law School at Queens Col-
lege was designated Secretary-Elect. Elected for four
year terms on the Section's twelve-member governing
Council were Robert Kopp of Syracuse, New York,
and Lee M. Burkey of Chicago, Illinois.


CHAIRMAN'S COMMENT


  An eventful year for the Section has drawn to a
close and another is already under way.
  Bernie Ashe's year as Chairman was particularly
significant with the publication
of three major additions to the
Section's growing library-the
second edition of Employment
DiscriminationLaw, by Barbara
Lindemann Schlei and Paul
Grossman, the all new two-
volume second edition of The
Developing Labor Law, edited
by Charles J. Morris, and Labor
Arbitrator Development: A
Handbook, edited by Chris Bar- Eugene L. Hartwig
reca, Ann Miller, and Max Zimny. The first two of
these important new publications are available to
members at special discount prices by using the order
form enclosed with the letter I sent recently to the Sec-
tion membership.
  The coming year should see another major writing ef-
fort completed with publication of the treatise on oc-
cupational safety and health law being written by the
Section's Occupational Safety and Health Law Com-
mittee.
  At the Section's Annual Meeting in Atlanta, discus-
sion of the bylaw changes proposed by the Council, in-


cluding increasing the Council membership from 12 to
16, prompted a suggestion that a means be found to af-
ford Council representation for the so-called third-
party members of the Section who are not aligned with
either union or management client interests. In re-
sponse I have, with Elliot Bredhoff's help, appointed a
special committee to look into the matter and report to
the Council at its midyear meeting. The committee will
be chaired by former Chairmen Charles Bakaly and
Bernard Ashe and includes Council members Mary
Ellen Krug, Robert McCalla, Laurence Cohen, Section
Delegate Robert Connerton, Section Secretary Patrick
Hardin, and former Section Secretary Ted St. Antoine.
  Although not insoluble, the matter of providing for
third-party representation on the Council is a deli-
cate one in light of the need to maintain the historical
balance between management and union interests so
essential to the successful functioning of the Section as
a forum and meeting place for all points of view.
  By way of a preview of the year ahead, a number of
the Section's substantive law committees have already
formulated plans for their midyear meetings, most of
which will take place during the February through
April time frame. A set schedule of those meetings is
included on page 11 of this newsletter.
