Fort Hays State University's Dr. Norman Caulfield, professor of history, was appointed to conduct a study for the Commission for Labor Cooperation by its Secretariat.
The Commission for Labor Cooperation, located in Washington, DC, is an inter-governmental organization created by the labor-side agreement of the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1994.
While on sabbatical from FHSU, Caulfield will conduct his study on contemporary labor relations in North America.
Caulfield has been published extensively on labor issues, especially pertaining to Mexico. He wrote Mexican Workers and the State: From the Porfiriato to NAFTA and is currently working on his second book, covering globalization and labor in Mexico and the United States.
