'Let's Do Lunch!' presentation to address collective bargaining

RELEASED: March 14, 2011

Let's Do LunchEAU CLAIRE — The political frenzy and fallout over the removal of collective bargaining rights in Gov. Scott Walker's budget repair bill will be addressed at a March 30 luncheon sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Alumni Association.

"Clashing Ideals: The Struggle over Unions and Collective Bargaining in Wisconsin" will be held from noon-1 p.m. at Sweetwaters Restaurant in Eau Claire as part of the Alumni Association's "Let's Do Lunch!" series.

Dr. Oscar Chamberlain, a senior lecturer of history at UW-Eau Claire, will use examples from the history of labor relations and collective bargaining in the United States — and specifically Wisconsin — to help explore the values that are in conflict and the interests at stake in the struggle over public employee unions today.

Chamberlain is currently the curriculum coordinator for "Constructing Liberty," a grant-funded program that creates graduate U.S. history courses for K-12 teachers. His fields of interest include U.S. Constitutional history, Wisconsin History and early national and antebellum United States.

The speaker series is open to the public. The cost is $10 per session and includes the presentation, buffet, beverage, tax and tip. For more information or to reserve tickets, contact the Alumni Association at alumni@uwec.edu or 715-836-3266.
