Interest-Based Bargaining Strategies and Structures (LR312)

This one-day training teaches you how to frame negotiation as joint problem solving, to resolve each party’s underlying issues, needs, and concerns. It provides a systematic process for putting interest-based bargaining principles into practice in collective bargaining and grievance handling. You’ll assess how your own organization’s bargaining practices can be more effective in reaching durable agreements that improve working relationships.

This training is for labor relations, human resource, operations, and finance professionals who support or are responsible for collective bargaining.

Key Topics

  • Effective issue discussion processes.

  • Information gathering and benchmarking strategies.

  • Techniques for generating creative options to solve tough problems.

  • Utilize the negotiation process to create innovative contract language and an ongoing labor-management relationship.

Approach and Features

Role-play, group work and case studies will develop skills for assessing bargaining interests and joint problem solving. Video simulations will demonstrate how to frame interests as opposed to positions during bargaining.
