In the Introduction to the book on p. 7 Tom explains:

“The ingenuity of our legal and political strategy reflected a new three-part model of labor, management, and government working together to revitalize a troubled industry and rekindle its potential, saving the kinds of jobs that helped build the American middle class in the first place.”

Professor Soren Hauge will moderate the panel.
