Best Practices For Managing Union Employees

Webinar: ID# 1030987
Recorded CD or On-Demand
About This Course:
Many employers feel that their hands are tied because of the fact that their workers are represented by a union. They do not understand the rights management has, or can have, under the very same collective bargaining agreement that provides rights to the employees.

This webinar will help employers understand the steps they can take at the bargaining table to make sure that they are able to effectively and efficiently manage their workforce. We will address the day-to-day issues that employers face when managing a union workforce, including conducting effective investigations that will hold up in the grievance and arbitration process.

This information is critical for employers so they can ensure that they are taking all of the appropriate steps to manage their union workforce effectively.
