Cynthia Estlund and Samuel Estreicher joined other top labor law experts at George Washington University Law School on October 28 and 29. The occasion was a conference to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). Estlund, Catherine A. Rein Professor of Law, contrasted employer acceptance of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act with their more hostile views of union organizing rights created by the NLRA. Estreicher, who is the Dwight D. Opperman Professor of Law and director of the Center for Labor and Employment Law, spoke about how the National Labor Relations Board could update its practices, without the need for legislative changes to the NLRA. In its report on the conference, the Daily Labor Report (available by subscription only) quoted both Estlund and Estreicher extensively.
