This three-session course is for new bargaining committee members, those looking for a refresher of bargaining basics, and unionists wanting to understand the process of bargaining a contract. We will cover preparing for bargaining including surveying members and conducting research; bargaining at the table; developing proposals; and building power through member and community engagement. The final session is taught by the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS) and addresses avoiding impasse and mediation.
