Webinar Outline

The last year has drastically changed the negotiating stance for companies and unions. If the term "business as usual" has changed, then contingency planning must also be revised. While much of the nation works its way out of the COVID "shutdown model," many companies are in contract negotiations with their unions. Decision-makers are assessing the lessons learned over the past year and incorporating them into strategic contingency planning and their approach at the negotiating table. As well, unions are sensing it is time to recover from past concessions. Proper planning remains essential for a strong negotiating position, allowing businesses to continue operations if they experience a work stoppage.
