Collective Bargaining Negotiations

Pragmatic and timely resolutions to collective bargaining negotiations

The New Zealand teacher’s strike is a good example of how disruptive, costly and frustrating protracted collective bargaining and negotiations can be.

It is in your interests to focus on the key issues that leave both parties with a realistic and workable agreement – quick, efficient and uncomplicated.

Approach your collective bargaining as you would a commercial contract negotiation; open and ready to listen, yet confident and well-informed.
