Effectively Negotiating with Trade Unions Interactive Workshop - Manchester

Date Tuesday 10 October 2017
Venue Marriott Victoria & Albert Hotel, Manchester M3 4JQ


It is essential more than ever that employers have an effective working relationship with their trade unions. However sometimes opposing views, rigid legal processes and limited timescales mean agreements between organisations and unions can be hard to reach.  Ensuring your organisation is able to effectively carry out constructive and ultimately successful negotiations with your Trade Union is vital.

BFI's Effectively Negotiating with Trade Unions Interactive Workshop is a practical, hands-on training day which will enable delegates to test out negotiation strategy, improve legal awareness, gain insight into the processes behind negotiation, become better equipped to deal with strongly held views and achieve favourable negotiation outcomes and ultimately better relations with your Trade Union.

Highlights:
• Real life case studies
• Negotiation skills exercise
• Feedback from top negotiation experts
• What legal issues must you be aware of during a negotiation?
• Dealing with attitudes, behaviour & perceptions
• Breaking down deadlocks
• Preparing your employees for negotiations
• Agenda setting: local vs. national issues
