2018 ER Negotiators Toolkit
This economic and socio/political analysis is based on current trends and predicted future developments, which are likely to influence CA negotiations. Being an election year, unions will be focused and active. Negotiations for employers will be more demanding!
Major disruptors, which could affect CA negotiations in NZ, are the new government, the Trump effect, EU elections, China, the exchange rate, housing, fuel and dairy prices. Business confidence thrives on stability and order, whereas unions come into their own during periods of uncertainty and change.
Executives, managers and HR professionals who are planning for, or are involved in union negotiations in 2018 should view this strategy and information session as essential preparation and planning.
