Take Flight with MEARIE Training
Managing relationships successfully within your organization is crucial to its performance. Whether it’s working within a team or with other departments, effective relationships ensure success. When considering union agreements, the interactions become more complex. Understanding the collective agreement and how it applies is crucial for healthy employer/employee relationships.
MEARIE is offering three courses that will prepare you to work more effectively with others, provide specific skills when dealing with union issues, and will help lay a strong foundation for future collective bargaining and professional interactions.
Learn how to build and maintain relationships with coworkers throughout your organization. We will explore the importance of a personal brand and how power/equity dynamics can influence teams, problem solving and success.
This program provides Supervisors and Managers with the tools needed to fully represent the interests of the employer, deal respectfully in accordance with the collective agreement, and work through the steps of successful investigations.
This virtual program takes participants through the clauses of a typical collective agreement, how to understand and interpret these clauses, and how to avoid unwanted precedents, erosion of rights and undesirable practices.
