Many members assume bargaining is a hostile interaction. However, that's not always the case. It's a collective dialogue that requires cooperation from both sides.
This webinar will focus on how bargaining works and the process required to implement a collective agreement within federal jurisdiction.
Guest speaker will be Tom Milne, Regional Negotiator, PSAC Prairie Region. Milne has worked for PSAC as a negotiator for eight years and is responsible for more than 25 bargaining units, including regional employers and national units.
What will be covered?
We will discuss three stages of bargaining: input gathering, face-to-face bargaining, and dispute resolution. We will give an overview of the various steps that occur during each stage, the role for members during those stages, and answer questions.
Who should register?
Members should register for this webinar to learn more about the process that affects their terms of employment. Also, for those interested in getting more involved with the negotiations process, whether on the bargaining team, attending a bargaining conference, submitting bargaining demands or participating in a ratification vote.
The PSAC Prairie Region will host monthly, interactive webinars as an outlet for members to learn about critical issues and get important updates. The webinars will also be an opportunity for members to ask questions and give feedback.
