UK Employment Seminar Series 2012: Industrial relations - Employers and trade unions: to engage or not?
Many employers recognise trade unions in respect of the whole or part of their workforce. Some employers go to great lengths to avoid working with trade unions whilst others are more ambivalent about the prospect of a new trade union relationship or their existing relationship.
This seminar will explain the basic, but sometimes misunderstood concepts relevant to a tripartite relationship between employers, employees and trade unions. The seminar will:
- draw on recent examples of trade union activity and provide guidance on the management and handling of difficult work place issues and industrial action
- explain clearly how a relationship with a trade union can arise, what strategies might be adopted by an employer choosing not to engage with a trade union and the practical consequences that follow on from trade union recognition.
Who should attend
- In-house counsel
- Employers who currently experience a formal trade union relationship and to those who do not and are either contemplating building a relationship or seeking to use strategies to avoid such a relationship altogether.
