Wilma B. Liebman

Vision Statement: LERA's advantage is its multi-disciplinary community with the synergies of knowledge and experience that the forum fosters. This dynamism is critical to academic achievement and workplace best practice, but also to public discourse on how to address pressing challenges such as inequality, economic insecurity and democratic institutions under stress. Its expertise on issues involving the skills and wellbeing of workers, the nature and future of work, the state of collective bargaining and workplace democracy makes LERA an ideal setting for exploring and debating competing ideas about a way forward, particularly at this uncertain historical moment.

Tamara L. Lee, Esq.

Shannon Gleeson


Vision Statement: In research, teaching and service, I am unapologetic in my commitment to critical race theory and intersectionality in labor relations theory and praxis. It is this very commitment that provides the foundation and the bridge connecting my research interests in Cuban participatory democracy and worker political advocacy in the United States. In my professional service I have vowed to radically confront our differences with the hope of building stronger, more equitable solidarity and more inclusive knowledge, movements and institutions. I will always speak truth to the power of cultural diversity and the strength of our collective scholarship and practice.

Vision StatementLERA and the entire field of industrial relations is at a crossroads, as the institutions designed to protect working people come under further attack.  Worker and Management organizations are undergoing fundamental transformations in response, and new paradigms are needed to understand the implications of this changing landscape in an era of heightened inequality, racism, xenophobia and misogyny. My goal is to strengthen LERA's ability to engage around these issues, across the policy, social movement, and academic spheres.

Vision StatementHaving been involved with LERA since my days as a student at MIT in the early 1990s, I'm excited to witness its resurgence in recent years and to see my colleagues and students at Brandeis University's Heller School gravitating toward LERA.  In the great tradition of industrial relations, I've had the pleasure of combining research and practice in my work, and I see this combination as one of LERA's greatest strengths.  Even more important to me is LERA's core purpose - to promote the dignity and well-being of all workers.  My vision for LERA is to help expand our impact around this core purpose.

Vision StatementThere is no other organization in the labor and employment community that has the same level of diversity in practice and thought combined with the impressive talent and passion of its membership.  As impressed as I am with LERA’s work and members, I am equally baffled as to why membership numbers are not greater.  As a LERA board member, I intend to work with other LERA members to understand why people participate in LERA… and why they don’t.  How do we build on the success that attracts our current membership while expanding our offerings, resources and/or profile to attract and motivate greater engagement?  A LERA membership should be a desired asset for any practitioner, academic, neutral or policy maker because of its reputation, relevance, usefulness, and network.  I would be honored to work closer with LERA to explore these dynamics and ensure the long term viability of this essential organization.

Vision Statement: LERA's mission and multidisciplinarian approach remain relevant and essential as countries around the world grapple with extraordinary change in labor markets, the nature of the employment relationship, and rapidly changing demographics. To increase its impact, and ensure its continued relevance, LERA must attract young people, as well as scholars and practitioners of color.  My goal is to help LERA reach these communities, and amplify their voices within LERA's ecosystem. 

Current Position: President, Minga Strategies, 2019.  I help unions and non-profits think beyond tradition. I also help organizations create workplaces where passion and creativity thrive, and bulllies do not.

Vision StatementSolid research can make people's lives better.  I know this because since 1989 I have seen it first hand in Tennessee, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Florida and other states.  And LERA members have been part of it.  It is vital for LERA to continue as a platform for the networking of facts, and ideas, because in these turbulent times for employment policy, solid research is more important than ever. The livelihoods of workers, their families, employers and an economy that works for everyone depend upon it.

Current Position: For the United Brotherhood of Carpenters, I assist construction stakeholders, including law-abiding employers, to pass and enforce legislation aimed at ending the plague of wage theft, employment tax and workers' compensation premium fraud. I track state and federal legislation, cases, research and am an expert witness at bill hearings and a resource for union staff, researchers, media, the insurance industry and enforcement agencies.

Past Positions: General Counsel, Carpenters Local Union 210, Western Connecticut 1991 to 2003; Business Representative, New England Regional Council of Carpenters 1996-2003.

Education: JD, University of Connecticut School of Law, 1988; BA, American Studies, Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT, 1982

LERA Activities: TERRA annual conferences in 2011, 2013, 2017: Presentations on the causes and effects of 1099 misclassification and off the books employment in the construction industry; LERA 2011 and 2012: Panel member at annual meetings on violations of employment and tax laws.

Other Affiliations, Activities, Awards: Member of carpenter locals 210 and 326, 1985 to present; member and legal subcommittee chair of the Tennessee Bureau of Workers' Compensation Employment Misclassification Advisory Committee, 2014 to present; Samuel Gompers Award,  International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions, 2018.

Vision StatementMy vision for LERA is to harness academic analysis more directly in support of worker voice, and to help inform LERA’s activities from a practitioner perspective. Ongoing technical change, fractured employment relationships, and the need for more high-quality employment make it critical that we not only anticipate changes and impacts, but proactively include workers in determining and shaping the “future of work.” LERA’s unique capacity to connect research on specific industries to practitioners is an important strength, and I hope to help focus LERA’s activities to improve the links between deep academic analysis and the real experience of workers. 

Current Position: As Director of Growth Strategies at the AFL-CIO, I support our affiliate unions' organizing priorities. My team of strategic researchers and campaigners partners with unions on industry research, comprehensive growth strategies, and a robust strategic research training program in order to build capacity for membership and density growth across the Federation. I also serve on the AFL-CIO internal staff team supporting the Commission on the Future of Work and Unions.

Past Positions: I have twenty years of experience as a strategic researcher in the labor movement, the last seven of those being at the AFL-CIO. Previously, I have worked at SEIU 32BJ, Good Jobs First, and the MLK Seattle/King County Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO.

Education: BA University of Wisconsin, 1992; MA University of Washington. Urban Planning, 1997

LERA Activities: I have been a LERA member for several years and look forward to getting more involved.

Vision StatementLERA plays a key role in bringing LER practitioners, academics, and other thought leaders together to reflect on and study the past, navigate the present, and seek solutions for the future.  My vision for LERA would be for the organization to advance its mission by harnessing the energy, passion, and possibility of an increasingly diverse workplace and leveraging the evolving technological landscape.  The savvy use of digital and social media platforms and bringing geographically dispersed participants together for programs and projects are just a few of the ways that the LERA can accelerate its influence in the field.

Vision StatementThe field of labor relations is facing its greatest period of challenge and change since the modern labor movement began in the 1930's. LERA needs to continue to be both an important resource for research and education and a change agent helping to mold the future of the labor world. Growing the ranks of practitioners (labor and management), while maintaining LERA's traditional focus on scholarship, is vital to the success of this endeavor. I hope to be a part of broadening LERA's imprint on the new developments occurring daily in political and academic circles.
