An introduction was delivered by Dorian Warren, Ph.D., assistant professor of political science at Columbia University and former student of Rhomberg’s.
Rhomberg, associate professor of sociology, read a selection from his book, which discusses the newspaper strike in Detroit during the 1990s. In his book, Rhomberg argues that unions go to the table wanting to negotiate the terms of employment while employers want to do away with the table entirely.
