  • the support and advice that is available to you when handling casework

Workplace rep - stage 3 (Negotiating skills)

The focus of the final day of the core training will help you to feel more confident when meeting managers and assisting members through negotiations and bargaining.

This day of the course will cover:

  • preparing for negotiations
  • understanding when an issue is collective and how to bargain collectively
  • the legal rights that may be used to support bargaining
  • developing the skills needed when meeting with management.
