Description

COURSE ​FEE: ​ ​$650.00
TARGET ​AUDIENCE: ​Supervisors ​and ​Managers

When ​dealing ​with ​a ​union, ​what ​are ​my ​rights ​as ​a ​supervisor ​or ​manager? ​ ​Are ​there ​certain ​kinds ​of ​decisions ​I ​can ​make ​without ​involving ​the ​union? ​ ​When ​do ​I ​have ​to ​consult ​with ​the ​union ​before ​moving ​forward? ​ ​And ​what ​about ​meetings? ​ ​Everyone ​talks ​about ​"good ​faith." ​ ​Just ​what ​does ​that ​mean ​and ​how ​do ​we ​decide ​what ​is ​-- ​and ​what ​is ​not ​-- ​good ​faith ​bargaining? ​ ​We ​will ​also ​cover ​the ​importance ​of ​reading, ​understanding, ​and ​applying ​contract ​language ​to ​solve ​day-to-day ​problems ​arising ​at ​work.

These ​are ​just ​a ​few ​of ​the ​key ​questions ​we ​will ​cover ​in ​this ​two-day ​interactive ​seminar. ​ ​Using ​practical ​exercises ​and ​role ​plays, ​this ​seminar ​takes ​a ​"management ​point ​of ​view." ​ ​Understanding ​and ​complying ​with ​the ​labor ​laws ​is ​essential. ​ ​However, ​supervisors ​and ​managers ​need ​to ​clearly ​understand ​their ​rights ​when ​a ​union ​is ​present ​in ​the ​workplace. ​ ​This ​is ​especially ​important ​when ​grievances ​arise ​or ​negotiations ​are ​required.

Takeaways: ​ ​After ​completing ​this ​course, ​attendees ​will ​be ​able ​to:
 ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​- ​ ​Effectively ​deal ​with ​a ​unionized ​work ​force

 ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​- ​ ​Identify ​special ​meeting ​situations ​that ​may ​or ​may ​not ​involve ​the ​union
 ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​- ​ ​Handle ​changes ​at ​work: ​ ​When ​to ​provide ​advance ​notice ​to ​the ​union
 ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​- ​ ​Interpret ​and ​apply ​contract ​language ​to ​solve ​everyday ​problems
