Collaborative Negotiation has been used as the basis for improved relationships in bargaining for the past two decades. It is a solid, tested approach to improve both bargaining relationships and working relationships without "giving away the store." Labor and management representatives who have used Collaborative Negotiation say they'll never go back to the old style of bargaining again.
Zena Zumeta has been providing training and facilitation for union-management collaboration efforts since 1985. She and the Collaborative Workplace team can provide collaborative negotiation training to help your bargaining team benefit from this new approach to bargaining.
In addition to training, our staff is available to facilitate collaborative negotiations and grievance resolution.
