Prepare for the Collective Bargaining Process

Key Points

  • Employers should prepare for the negotiation process by setting and prioritizing goals, e.g., determining the maximum wage increase they can propose to the union.
  • Employers must always make a good faith effort during the negotiation process with a union.
  • Employers must also provide the union with all information that is available, relevant, able to be compiled in a reasonable manner and not classified as confidential. Employers are also obligated to meet with the union at reasonable times in reasonable locations.
