FTI 1219 Contract Negotiations 05032020 (Postponed)
May 3, 2020 - May 8, 2020
This course is for IUPAT officers and staff members who negotiate collective bargaining agreements with their signatory contractors. This course covers a wide spectrum of activities related to the development of a contract, which meets the needs of their members – from drafting initial proposals to gaining support during the ratification process (and various steps in between). In addition, it will inform participants about alternative ways contracts can be bargained and the consequences associated with them. A full review of legal developments as they apply to and affect bargaining in the construction industry will also be presented and discussed. Also included is a discussion on the usefulness to improve productivity and safety, of the establishment of joint Labor-Management Committees under the Labor-Management Cooperation Act of 1978. The course also includes discussions led by contractor negotiators to more fully understand the perspectives of employers. The legal framework of multi-employer bargaining in the construction industry is fully explored. The session will culminate with students participating in a mock bargaining session.
