Webinar Outline

COVID-19 and market conditions have created the perfect storm. Companies negotiating in 2022 can expect considerable demands from their unions. Labour shortages and inflation are causing concerns at the bargaining table. Emergency pandemic pay introduced at the beginning of COVID 19 has been scaled back or eliminated altogether.

For years unions have been forced to accept concessions during bargaining. The tables have now turned, and union members can seek significant gains. Workers have seen reports of record profits and substantial increases in executive pay over the past two years.

This webinar will touch on current trends, new risks, and challenges you need to consider as well as key planning considerations and the impact of COVID.
