Labor Notes is pleased to present a series of free webinars taught by veteran Boston labor lawyer Robert M. Schwartz.

This webinar, held on September 17, was entitled "Requests for Information" and based on Chapter 4 of Schwartz's popular book The Legal Rights of Union Stewards. The session begins around the 22-second mark.

One of the most useful parts of U.S. labor law is the obligation of employers to furnish records and other information needed to investigate and process union grievances, as well as to negotiate contracts. This webinar covers how unions can get the most out of these information requests.
