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.
