About British Universities Industrial Relations Association (BUIRA)

The Central London branch of BUIRA meets in the Westminster Business School of the University of Westminster at 35 Marylebone Road, London NW1 5LS (nearest tube Baker Street) on the last Friday of the month at 10.30 in the HRM Suite, Room 215, with coffee available from 10.15 and a sandwich lunch provided from 12.30.

This gives ample opportunity to discuss the presentation from an invited speaker and matters of common interest, as well as to just catch up with friends. The programme aims to give us fresh insights into key current issues, to present new approaches to the subject of industrial relations, and to discuss important research in the area - whether in Britain or farther afield. The programme for 2010/11 is focussed on changes and developments in employment relations in different regions of the globe. So do put these dates in your diary now. These meetings can be full.
