Collective Bargaining for Public Management (State and Local): Instructors Manual.
Civil Service Commission, Washington, DC. Labor Relations Training Center.
The instructor's manual for a four to five day course designed to assist public sector managers in attaining a stable and productive labor relations environment is intended for use with two other books, the Reference Materials and the Case Materials. The course, created principally for use in a formal classroom setting, can be adapted to suit the needs of the participants. The subject matter is structured in seven units, basically keyed to the stages of the collective bargaining process. The unit topics are: collective bargaining process overview; why and how workers join unions; petition, election, and recognition stages; the negotiations process; negotiations (a simulation); contract administration; and an in-basket exercise (used as a tool for summarizing the entire course). Suggested total teaching time, teaching methods, and training aids are specified for each unit. The units are presented in a two-column format. One column provides instructor guidance such as notes, references, objectives, and further suggestions for techniques and teaching aids. A 33-item list of selected sources for instructors concludes the manual. (Author/MS)
