Collective bargaining

Collective bargaining is the process used for negotiating collective employment agreements.

Initiation of collective bargaining

An employer or union can initiate bargaining by giving the other parties an initiation of bargaining notice. If a party receives a notice meeting the requirements, they have to enter into bargaining.

Preparing for bargaining

Preparing for collective bargaining may include choosing and training the bargaining team, drafting a potential collective agreement, and setting up the bargaining process agreement.
