Communicating & Negotiating with Unions
Work stoppages and strikes can affect productivity levels, increase employment costs and create a negative atmosphere that prevents employers and unions alike from achieving what they want from their negotiations. Yet both sides of the industrial fence can get what they want if they are astute in their industrial bargaining. Success in the bargaining outcome with unions requires strong preparation, a persuasive negotiation strategy and a sound understanding of employment law.
Communicating and Negotiating with Unions has been designed to develop your knowledge of the ERA and your rights and obligations concerning unions, collective agreements and good faith. This course is your chance to learn and understand key negotiation techniques and employment law crucial for union engagement.
