Research/Teaching: unions, labour relations, negotiation, conflict resolution and collective bargaining.

Robert Hickey joined the School of Policy Studies in January 2006 as a faculty member in the Master’s of Industrial Relations program. He teaches one of the core MIR courses, unions and collective bargaining, as well as a course on negotiations and dispute resolution. He is frequently asked to participate in continuing education programs for union officers and staff.

Prior to his doctoral studies at Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations, Professor Hickey spent ten years as a union representative and organizer in the Teamsters Union.

Professor Hickey’s research interests focus on the impact of industrial restructuring on labour-management relations. His current research examines innovative union strategies in the manufacturing and transportation sectors.
