Collective Bargaining

Collective bargaining is a fundamental part of the practice at Sherrard Kuzz LLP. Our team regularly provides advice to employers in both the public and private sectors on collective bargaining strategy and drafting collective agreement proposals. We maximize clients’ results by:

  • Sourcing and assessing recent collective agreements within the same or related sector, including those of competitors and recently signed by the trade union with which our client is dealing
  • Assessing client objectives as against existing collective agreement language and developing a strategy to achieve those objectives
  • Establishing strategy to achieve desired outcomes
  • Sourcing economic information
  • Anticipating trade union strategy
  • Ensuring legal compliance
  • Acting as company spokesperson and/or as a support member of the client’s negotiation team
  • Facilitating viable, long-term and trusted partnerships between management and labour
