Regional Bargaining Training
November 17, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EST
The UniServ Directors of Districts 4, 5, 6, 9, and 10 are combining forces to offer a comprehensive virtual negotiations training series this Fall. This training is especially beneficial for those who are at the bargaining table this year, but all negotiators are welcome to attend regardless of whether you will be at the table this year.
Local Chief Negotiators and all bargaining team members are strongly encouraged to commit to attend ALL FOUR sessions. Participation in these trainings is vital to your success at the bargaining table. It’s also important to become comfortable negotiating in a virtual setting as the weather becomes colder and the likelihood of safe in-person meetings becomes increasingly uncertain. This training will also facilitate communication across a broad geographic area in Maine so that we can learn from the experiences of other members who have already discovered advantages and pitfalls of negotiating in a virtual world and develop a more consistent strategy at the Zoom-table.
Session 1 – Bargaining Basics
Session 2 – Contract Analysis & Proposal Presentation
Session 3 – Salaries & Insurance
Session 4 – Strategy & Behavior
