Preparation for collective bargaining is the key to a successful settlement.  We will do the necessary research, looking at non-monetary & monetary market trends in your industry and geographic area. Working with your team, we develop proposals and strategies that are tied to your business plans, anticipate and prioritize union demands and fall back positions, as well as prepare strike / lockout plans.  We will also provide tactical and strategic advice to Provincially or Federally regulated employers on labour legislative matters.

The collective bargaining process can be a distraction to your organization’s limited resources. The bargaining process is not an every day event; managers may not have the necessary skills or time to conduct effective proactive interest based bargaining.  As chief spokesperson, we have successfully settled over 40 collective agreements with various unions.  All were within mandate and without work disruption and helped to preserve or enhance working relationships for both parties.  From negotiations of first agreements to closure agreements we have the experience to get a mutually agreed settlement.
