George Larney, Labor Arbitrator and Mediator at BLAMS, LLC, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in labor-management mediation.
After obtaining a Master of Business Administration in labor and industrial relations from the Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management in 1966, Dr. Larney subsequently earned a Doctor of Philosophy in labor economics and collective bargaining from the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago in 1971, where he delivered superior service as an economics teacher from 1966 to 1971. He then prospered from 1973 to 1974 as executive director and Federal Officer with the National Commission for Industrial Peace, a federal government commission established by presidential executive order as an appendage to the wage-price stabilization program. The commission studied the country’s national labor policy affecting both the private and public sectors and made recommendations to the president relative to making improvements in our national labor policy.
As commissioner of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service from 1974 to 1978 and as a labor mediator and arbitrator in private practice with the Bureau of Labor Management Arbitration Services (BLAMS, LLC) since 1979, Dr. Larney has mediated hundreds of contract disputes and has been involved in numerous high-profile labor-management affairs, and has found much success as a self-employed arbitrator-mediator of labor-management disputes including grievance and contract disputes both in the private and public sector. During his career, Dr. Larney has chaired the labor-management committee in the Chicago region of the American Arbitration Association and served as president of the Chicago chapter of the Industrial Relations Research Association. One of Dr. Larney’s most notable achievements was his work as the executive director of a presidential commission in charge of studying labor management national policy during the Nixon administration. It was very fulfilling because he worked with people at the upper levels of government, including the Labor Secretary, Secretary of Commerce, and the Secretary of the Treasury.
