Navigating Your Way to a Constructive Approach to Labour Relations

Understanding the What and the How!

Managers in a unionized workplace are challenged to manage effectively within the legal and contractual parameters. The collective agreement, often referred to as the law of the workplace, adds to the complexity.

Put another way managing in a collective agreement world is an exercise in navigation– through contract language, employment statutes, personalities and external influences. This session provides participants with information, insight, tools and strategies that will assist them in managing a workplace dynamic governed by certain rules and practices.

This interactive session facilitates understanding through hands on practice.
