The Collective Bargaining Process

Collective bargaining aims to improve working conditions for both unionized workers and management, which also leads to broader socio-economic changes. Students learn practical skills and knowledge related to administering, negotiating, and interpreting collective agreements and unfair labour practices. Through applied research projects, online discussions, and case study analyses, students develop and apply methods and approaches to dispute resolution within the labour relations sphere, including grievance procedures, arbitration, mediation, and alternative bargaining.
