Organizing 4 Power – Big & Open Bargaining

August 12, 2022

We are excited to offer a supplimental course for those who have participated in the Organizing 4 Power workshops with us over the past few years. A second level course focused specifically on the concept of big and open bargaining called “Power & Participation in Negotiations”.

Power and Participation in Negotiations is a three-part training focused on the shift to transparent, big and open negotiations, and how this approach can build power in your workplace and beyond. This course will be led by O4P lead trainer Jane McAlevey, who has spent her life applying this approach in hard negotiations.

This course, unlike our Core Fundamentals training, does require reading. It will function as a dynamic online global reading group, presuming that your group has met once prior to October 1st to start discussing the preface and introduction to the report, and that your group will follow along as we move through other chapters, discussing them together over the course of October. Each of our three sessions will involve interactive participation, and participants will leave with a concrete understanding of how to shift their work to winning more.

Power and Participation in Negotiations will take place at 10 am on three Saturdays in October – the 1st, 15th and 29th – with each session lasting two hours.

This training can only be taken by groups of 10+ who have completed the Organizing 4 Power course. As always the EDLC is happy to facilitate this and could “vouch” for those who are working on this project within their unions but have yet to complete the original course. If you have allies in your union working on achieving Big & Open Bargaining for your members please extend to them this invitation.

Please register BY THE END OF AUGUST using the form below, we look forward to seeing you there!
