Digital Labor-Management Committee Tips & Traps
Group Classes Via Zoom

Wednesday, March 15, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Labor-Management Committees (LMCs) can be a useful strategy for representing members’ interests when new issues arise mid-contract. COVID-19 leave/protection side letters and a host of other non-contractual working conditions are addressed through this method.  On the downside, LMCs can be a way for management to appear to listen, without actually doing anything, tying up important issues in endless investigation/conversation. At their worst, LMCs can be utilized by management to delay or divide the union. Participate in a 1.5-hour zoom discussion on the tips and traps of LMCs.
