Labor Relations Certificates

The Labor Relations Program offers certificates in Contract Administration and Collective Bargaining Studies. Each certificate requires six workshops for a total of 60 units.

While a certificate can be earned in as little as two weeks, all required workshops for each certificate must be completed within an 18-month period. If you participate in a Cornell workshop and intend to apply it toward earning a certificate, then please do let us know.

When you complete the final workshop in your chosen curriculum, you will be awarded a framed Cornell ILR certificate that attests to your achievement.

Contract Administration Studies

Managing staff and operations within the confines of a collective bargaining agreement requires a full understanding of contract terms, legal principles, and grievance procedures.

Collective Bargaining Studies

This certificate provides a comprehensive overview of the collective bargaining process from pre-bargaining preparation to final sign-off.
