Share Article

Cornell University’s ILR School is now offering specialized Canadian labour relations training and collective bargaining training.

If you are preparing for or supporting bargaining, want to improve your negotiation skills and knowledge, administering a collective bargaining agreement, or have new members on your labour relations or operations team, then your organization needs the Canadian Labour Relations Training program as part of your education plan.

Cornell University’s ILR School, in association with Oakbridges Labour Relations Strategist Inc., is now offering specialized training in two forms: open enrollment collective bargaining training and contract administration training with workshops and certificates in Toronto; and customized programs specifically designed for and delivered at your organization.
Certificates can be obtained over a 24 month period.

Customized Programs

As any of our programs can be customized to meet the unique needs of your organization. Cornell will craft an educational program that incorporates the actual issues, contracts and challenges faced by your organization. The programs include multiple opportunities to practice learned skills through group exercises, case studies and simulations.

Collective Bargaining Training

This intensive course is designed to prepare the collective bargaining team for negotiations. It includes multiple opportunities for participants to practice what they are learning through cases studies, group exercises and a negotiation simulation. Participants learn how to put their organization’s corporate strategy at the center of their thinking when developing a bargaining strategy. Using their knowledge of corporate strategy and the operations of the organization, participants engage in an interactive exercise to develop bargaining strategy which includes translating overall objectives into specific proposals and anticipating union’s response and demands. Students then learn and practice “at-the-table” negotiating strategy and tactics. Cornell Instructors and select participants will form the union teams. Among the union teams’ duties, is to guide the flow of the negotiations to highlight key learning points and where application of best practices would be useful.
