Faculty and Summary
Whether parties are attempting to negotiate a new collective bargaining agreement or, in non-union settings, they are working on drafting the terms of an employment contract, it is not unusual to reach impasse on one or more issues. Mediation has become the preferred alternative to assist parties in overcoming their disagreements. However, the question of when and how to introduce mediation to the negotiating process is frequently a challenge in itself.
Preparing and planning for negotiation should include:
• Deciding your strategies and style
Mediation can be used to address virtually any issue or problem that has arisen in the bargaining process, including:
• Moving from positional to integrative bargaining
Program participants will analyze a case study and the discussion will be led by an experienced faculty of negotiation and mediation experts.
This webinar will be held via ZOOM. A link will be sent to registrants prior to the webinar date.
