The Role of the Business Manager in Collective Bargaining

ACSA Business Academy, Lodi Unified School District
Lodi, California

This seminar defines the role of the business manager in the collective bargaining process.  This seminar focuses on how to calculate the financial impact of bargaining proposals, the impact of collective bargaining on the budget, and the hidden cost of non-monetary bargaining matters.  It also outlines the basic elements of the bargaining process, from preparation for negotiations and initial proposals to impasse procedures.  The bargaining process portion of the seminar includes a discussion of the nuances of the legal responsibility to bargain in “good faith.”  This seminar highlights the importance of maintaining basic district management rights and, at the same time, developing and maintaining a successful relationship with the bargaining unit that reaches beyond the bargaining table.
