2023 has been a historic year for labor, with ongoing strikes throughout the country pressuring management across multiple sectors to return to the bargaining table. Though the public sector has historically avoided many of the major union activities that have affected other industries, the successful strikes in California earlier this year suggest that this may be changing.
As union activity continues to increase, an understanding of the mechanics and complexities of collective bargaining is perhaps more necessary than ever for managers. In this webinar, you'll join two of ICMA's most popular experts on the topic as they discuss the basics, best practices, and nuances you need to know in order to negotiate a mutually beneficial agreement for both sides. They will cover:

  • The nuts and bolts of the manager's role in collective bargaining
  • The first steps a manager should take when preparing for negotiations
  • Effective communication strategies
  • How to cost out proposals and settlements
  • Transparency and ethics
