CHIMN  COMN


It is with mixed feelings of pride and trepidation
that I commence my year as Chairman of the Labor
and Employment Law Section. I am, of course, proud
to chair this Section which has          1
become one of the most dy-
namic in the American Bar
Association and one which has
become progressively more
active and successful; trepi-
dation because it is a big job
and Past Chairman Allan Bioff
has left me a very tough act to
follow.
  It is not possible for me to Bernard King
express adequately what an outstanding job I think
Allan Bioff did during his year as Chairman.. The
nearly 1,000 attendees at the San Francisco Annual
Meeting had the opportunity to test part of the fruits
of Allan's creative and diligent work. Allan's chair-
manship is a culmination of many years of Section
activity. He served as co-chairman of the Commit-
tee on Development of the Law Under the National
Labor Relations Act, as an editor of The Developing
Labor Law, Second Edition, as liaison from the
Council to the Committee on Development of the
Law Under the National Labor Relations Act, and
as co-chairman of the Section's Publications Com-
mittee. In all of these roles Allan has worked dili-
gently, effectively, and with obvious enthusiasm. His

year as Chairman was a continuation of that quality
of contribution and his work brought the stature of
the Section to a new level of excellence. It has been
my good fortune to work closely with Allan during
most of the years of our activity with the Section.
He has become a good personal friend and I want
to thank him personally and on behalf of the Section
for all he has done. I know he will continue to be a
major contributor.
  I hope that I can capitalize on the resulting enthu-
siasm and keep the Section moving on the same pro-
gressive track. And, it does look like 1987-88 will be
an exciting year. The book on The Railway Labor
Act Legislative History has been finished and will be
published this year. The OSHA treatise should be
published early in 1988. The supplement to How Ar-
bitration Works will be published in 1988. The Law
of Employee Benefits is scheduled for publication in
1988. Meanwhile plans are being made for the third
edition of The Developing Labor Law to be pub-
lished in 1991. In fact, a Search Committee to select
an editor-in-chief for this publication has been es-
tablished and consists of Professor Ted St. Antoine,
Timothy O'Reilly, and Stephen Gordon.
  An expanded membership is one of our very sig-
nificant goals for this year. Chairman-Elect Bill
Keller will coordinate the work of the Special Com-
mittee on Membership. Although the quality of our
