Bargaining Perspectives From A Union And Management Expert: What You Need To Know!

This session features a leading union-side attorney and negotiator and a sought-after agency negotiator sharing their unique perspectives on negotiating during these challenging financial times. Both have negotiated, advised, arbitrated, and/or litigated pension and retiree health benefit issues, health changes, and implementation of layoffs and furloughs, and will discuss the realities in working out deals on these and other hot labor issues when money is tight. They also will discuss negotiation impasses and AB646, and you’ll come away with a more sophisticated understanding of how to balance the parties’ legal rights, the often differing perspectives of labor and management, and how to get to yes (or at least maintain good labor relations) when money is tight.
