Back to School for Labor Relations Training

For 40 years, Cornell’s Industrial and Labor Relations School has shifted with the changes in the union landscape. Sally Klingel, director of labor management relations at ILR’s Scheinman Institute on Conflict Resolution, travels 30 to 40 times a year teaching companies how to work with unions more effectively. Her programs, along with open enrollment sessions held at the institute’s New York City conference center, teach dispute resolution, organizational conflict management and relationship building techniques. Klingel took time from crisscrossing the country to discuss her work and what skills company leadership needs to form better rapport with unions, as well as how companies have to adapt to the changing landscape of organized labor.
