Professor Ruben Garcia Talks Collective Bargaining in International Business Times

Ruben J. Garcia is a professor of law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

Professor Garcia recently spoke to the International Business Times for a March 25 article titled “Nevada 'Union Armageddon' Bill Targets Public Sector Collective Bargaining.” 

The article, which talked about proposed legislation that would introduce changes to collective bargaining in the public sector, included comments from Professor Garcia.

Responding to the changes, Professor Garcia said, “It’s stopped short of prohibiting collective bargaining entirely, but would make it so onerous that the system as it has functioned would grind down.”

A recognized expert in the field of labor and employment law, Professor Garcia teaches Labor Law, Employment Law, Constitutional Law, and Professional Responsibility at the Boyd School of Law. He has been quoted in the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Las Vegas Review-Journal, among others, and has appeared on national and local radio and television programs.
