BGS Labor and Employment shareholder Scott Lepak spent Sunday, October 25 in Galina, Illinois as an instructor for the National Public Employers Labor Relations Association at its Labor Relations Academy. Participants in this Academy are working toward becoming Certified Labor Relations Professionals.
Scott is a regular instructor for this program and is happy to share his 25+ years of experience as a chief labor negotiator with up and coming labor negotiators. Participants always get a kick out of the fact that Scott started doing labor negotiations when people would smoke at the negotiations table and shout at each other (well actually there still is some shouting once in a while in negotiations).
Scott says that this academy is one of his favorites because fall colors in Galina are spectacular and Galina is a great place to spend time in all of the local establishments. BGS is particularly happy to have had Scott at this conference because he brought back Apple Cider donuts.
