Event description
Join an interactive webinar discussion with Bernard King and Cy Charney to explore the latest trends in managing unionized employees.

About this Event

Changes to collective agreements, labour laws, human rights codes, grievance and disciplinary procedures makes managing in a unionized environment challenging when it comes to maintaining a cohesive, trusting and motivated workforce:

• How is your organization doing in working with the union as compared to others? Are you worse, the same, or better?

• Why have some unions maintained a combative stance against their employers while others seem able to work collaboratively?

• How can you gain an organizational advantage, effectively managing your unionized workforce and developing labour relations that produce win-win outcomes for all?

Join an interactive webinar discussion with Bernard King, a labour relations specialist, and Cy Charney, a leading Canadian thought leader in the area of organizational performance, to explore these and other questions related to managing and supervising unionized employees.
