NVPELRA and National PELRA Presents:
Academy III: The Negotiation Process
January 16, 2020
Las Vegas, NV
Academy III focuses on the ‘Negotiations Process’ in a simulation involving economic, reclassification and benefit issues that gives participants an opportunity to sharpen their negotiating skills. Topics include:
Obtaining Parameters: Preparation for Bargaining
Structuring and Costing a Multi-year Settlement
Timing and Order of Settlements
Making the Final Offer
How to Use a Mediator in a Union-Management Dispute
Each attendee is assigned to a union or management team and given confidential instructions for strategic planning. Coaches and "mediators" are provided and additional instructions keep the exercise lively. An interactive workshop on thorny problems such as the timing of settlements, impasse strategies and multi-year contracts precedes the simulation and debriefing. A discussion on Perspectives of the Negotiations Process rounds out the day with perspectives from a management panel.
Materials are sent out in advance for preparation before the session.
