Presentation Monday on labor principles

The Labor Day holiday raises questions about the current status of relations between employees as collective bargaining groups and their employers.

However and whenever those respective parties engage in negotiations about their proper compensation, benefits and duties, some might ask whether the mutual agreements obtained are fair and just.

Their consenting to just any pact is not enough. Reciprocity and autonomy are beneficial principles, which should be observed in such agreements.

To learn more about a case for equality in seeking agreements, the public is invited to a presentation of the same that I will give at 7 p.m. Monday at the Wesley United Methodist Church, just off Lynn Boulevard at 16th Avenue, Sterling.

I will discuss John Rowls’ egalitarian philosophy as presented in Michael Sandel’s book “Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do.”

The meeting is sponsored by Sauk Valley Interfaith Peace Action.

The meeting will be preceded by a potluck supper at 6 p.m. Those attending the potluck are requested to bring a dish to pass.

Those who wish more information may call me at 815-632-0918.
