UPCOMING PROGRAMS 2002

The 24th annual Piper Lecture, April 16th
"The Transformation of the Professional Workforce"

On Tuesday, April 16, Chicago-Kent will present the 24th annual Kenneth M. Piper Lecture, The Transformation of the Professional Workforce, from 11:30-1:00 p.m, in the auditorium.

Historically, professional workers have displayed an ideology of individualism. Work is not a commodity to be sold on the market but a calling that constitutes personal identity while also conferring a relatively privileged class status. Professionals have asserted their legal rights as workers primarily through individual contract and tort theories that redress the potential loss of professional identity. Market instability and management techniques threaten to undermine the autonomy, judgment and control over job content that once characterized professional status. When that status is challenged at its core, labor becomes commodified and workers' receptivity to union organizing or collective action around the assertion of individual employment rights is enhanced.

Professor Marion G. Crain of the University of North Carolina will deliver the lecture. Commentators are Peter J. Hurtgen, chairman, National Labor Relations Board; Dean L. Manheimer, senior vice president of human resources, Northwestern Memorial HealthCare; and Robert M. Tobias, former national president of the National Treasury Employees Union and distinguished adjunct professor in residence at American University.

All faculty, students, and staff are invited to attend.
