IRE1635: Collective Bargaining

This subject guide is meant to assist students, particularly those enrolled in IRE1635, with research papers and assignments.

Welcome to Collective Bargaining

The primary purpose of this course is to examine the major elements to be considered by unions and management in their preparation for collective bargaining and in the negotiation of labour contracts. It will also deal with the background factors and dynamics of the negotiations process outside of the formal requirements of labour legislation. A secondary purpose of the course is to introduce students to alternative dispute resolution processes and their application within the context of the workplace.
