About This Workshop

This supervisory training is an introductory workshop designed to provide participants with the fundamental skills and information they need to effectively manage their unionized employees.

Participants will learn about the principles of progressive discipline and how the process can best be applied to empower them to manage for the mutual benefit of themselves and their unionized employees. In addition, supervisors will learn about the key elements of just cause and be provided with an extensive explanation of each element. This will be followed by information about due process, which includes procedural due process matters that may arise under a collective bargaining agreement, as well as Weingarten rights.

The running time of this workshop is approximately one hour.  The program includes narrated slide presentations, multiple knowledge checks, and  two 25-question quizzes. Upon successful completion of each of the course elements, a certificate will be awarded.
