Women in Collective Bargaining

5 Days

Our union needs the voices and priorities of women at the negotiating table.  Are you already a member of your bargaining committee, or interested in developing skills to take an active part in union negotiations?

This course will equip participants with skills and knowledge of the union’s bargaining priorities and practices.  You will learn the importance of contract language, preparation and research, leadership, and maximizing your bargaining power by developing a strategic approach to bargaining.

This course covers the material in the Unifor Collective Bargaining Program and focuses on viewing our agreements with an equity eye and increasing women’s presence and issues at the bargaining table. A program that will connect you with women mentors who will demystify the collective bargaining process and inspire you to get involved!
