About the course

Education, law enforcement and health care are all now front and center in every municipality. How and when to open schools, the state of our hospitals, PPE and handling a second wave, how we police – are THE dominant social and political conversations. Success across these domains requires serious collective bargaining.

Are you ready to negotiate with teachers, cops and nurses? Cornell ILR Professional Programs have been providing renowned, practical training in labor relations for over forty years.

Already areas of growing labor relations and collective bargaining -- education, law enforcement and health care are all now front and center in every municipality. How and when to open schools, the state of our hospitals, PPE and handling a second wave, how we police – are THE dominant social and political conversations. Success across these domains requires serious collective bargaining.

In two cases, education and health care, renewed activism means the employees and unions will be the ones pressing for change with public support. In law enforcement, the onus for change is on the employer, who, for now, has public support on its side.

Yet most public sector employers are not prepared for this, lacking a serious process to develop a labor strategy or ability to engage in real negotiations and labor-management-relations. This workshop fixes that.

The program consists of 2-3 hours of pre-work and three and a half live virtual sessions.

All Sessions include significant small group work in break out rooms, or the ability to complete certain short assignments away from the computer.
