An important interest of Ray's has been in the area of industrial relations and labour economics
. He was instrumental in the formation of the Industrial Relations Society of Western Australia in 1964, and through the next two decades provided support for various unions preparing wage cases and acting as an expert witness for the unions or the Trades and Labor Council in wage cases.
He asked Labour economics
spokesman Mike O'Brien's office for a series of reports to be posted to his parents' Hampshire home.

at Maastricht University, the Netherlands.
