Communication and Conflict
When communication in the workplace or between a union and employer breaks down, parties may experience interpersonal conflict, increased disputes, or a total breakdown in the labor-management relationship. Explore communication styles and learn key conflict resolution strategies to help maintain, enhance, and rebuild positive workplace relationships.
Labor-management committees can be a proactive forum for unions and employers to discuss emerging workplace issues before conflicts arise. Participants will learn best practices to organize and run an effective labor-management committee and develop a plan that meets their needs.
