Collective Bargaining Workshop

This course will take students through the stages of the collective bargaining process in a workshop/simulation method and culminating in the bargaining of a contract. Students will learn the relevant labor law principles, the methodology of collective bargaining and will then form management or union teams to study and engage in the process of bargaining for an initial contract in a newly organized union shop.

Grading and Method of Evaluation:
Letter grade with pass/fail option. The final grade will be based on a paper on bargaining, draft bargaining proposals and the final contracts.
