Committee on Class and Labor reports

In the February meeting, psychiatry professor Nadine Kaslow spoke on the report concluding the first phase of work by the Committee on Class and Labor—Staff Focus, formed in spring 2010. Kaslow, who co-chaired the committee with Gary Hauk, vice president and deputy to the president, noted from the findings that “class issues are alive and well at Emory as they are in our community more broadly,” but also that while people are generally satisfied with their work and benefits, there were “mixed feelings about compensation.” She also observed, “there are tremendous opportunites in terms of educational growth,” but that the environment does not consistently support professional development and advancement. Kaslow added that factors related to co-employment law hindered the committee’s efforts to gather data on contract workers on campus.

An advisory committee that will be part of the University Senate will oversee the implementation of recommendations concerning infrastructure, community and culture, communication on campus, profesesional development, and several other areas. To read the full report, click here.
