A Talk on the Labor Parallel in Haiti at the University of Californa, Los Angeles (UCLA)

I will be giving a talk on the failure of international labor institutions to address and investigate labor abuse under the interim government of Gerald Latortue in Haiti, 2004-2006. I will also discuss their support for unions that aggitated for the overthrow of the elected government of Jean-Bertrand Aristide. The talk will be held at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) this Friday (March 10, 2006) in the Ackerman Union (AU) 2408 from 10:30am to 12:30pm as part of the Globalization and Labor Workshop B. The other talk in the workshop by B.S. Rao, Osmania University of Hyderabad, India, will examine the role of globalization on coal mining unions in India. Both talks will be part of the 32nd Annual Southwest Labor Studies Association Conference (SWLSA). My newly documented research will be in a forthcoming article. For more information see
