April 13, 2016

The Centre for Labour Studies at Brock University has signed a five-year agreement of cooperation with Hugh Lawson Shearer Trade Union Institute at the University of the West Indies, Open Campus in Jamaica. According to a Brock release, the agreement will facilitate research collaborations, faculty and student exchanges, and other joint academic ventures between academics in both countries. “Brock was founded partly through the generous financial contributions of workers in the Niagara region,” says Thomas Dunk, Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences at Brock. “This Agreement of Co-operation builds on that rich tradition and will enhance opportunities for students and faculty to investigate such issues at a time when globalization has made international comparison and co-operation essential to understanding them and finding positive solutions to problems.” Brock
