ABSTRACT
The article presents news briefs related to industrial relations in the U.S. and Canada, as of January 1948. An Institute of Industrial Relations was created by the California Legislature in 1945 at the University of California declaring its purpose to be the promotion of a better understanding between employer and employee groups. Meanwhile, Wayne University in Detroit, Michigan has organized an Institute of Industrial Relations to provide systematic and objective study of the economic, social, legal, psychological and educational aspects of important industrial relations problems now facing management, labor and government. Furthermore, the Institute of Industrial Relations at the University of Toronto was founded in April 1946 with its first function to promote the study of industrial relations in the Graduate School.
