Interest-Based Bargaining & Interest-Based Problem Solving Training:
The interest-based approach emphasizes communication skills, sharing information, examination of interests rather than positions, applying standards to those options and arriving at a mutual gains solution by consensus. This collaborative process allows the parties to arrive at higher quality technical solutions based on deep understanding of the interests of both parties. Interest based solutions help to build trust between the parties and enhance the on–going labor/management relationship. To request training, click here.
Labor-Management Committee Training:
Management and labor looking for alternate ways to improve communication and problem solving have formed Labor Management Committees. These committees will focus on issues or problems that are not typically covered by a collective bargaining agreement. Participants in the training will learn how to set up their committees, build communication skills and trust, and develop a problem solving process. The Labor Management Committee provides a good forum to discuss and resolve issues prior to grievances or negotiations. To request training, click here.
