Managing In A Unionized Workplace
Managing In A Unionized Workplace
Supervising employees in a unionized workplace has its own unique set of rules and challenges. In this course, we will provide supervisors and managers with practical tools to successfully apply their management rights and administer collective agreements in the workplace. Participants will gain a thorough understanding of the legal and practical landscape to manage unionized employees.

– Investigating misconduct and conducting a proper investigation


This course will be completed over 2 online sessions and will incorporate case studies and hypothetical scenarios to provide participants with the opportunity to apply their learnings.
