The New Face of Collective Relationships, Collective Bargaining & Industrial Action

Your presenters will be

Mike Beaumont and Nerine Kahn


The social partners have reached consensus on new Codes of Good Practice on Collective Bargaining, Industrial Action and Picketing (codes), & proposed changes to the LRA on dispute resolution and picketing.

This one-day workshop aims to provide participants with key insights on how best to take advantage of the codes & lay foundations for mutually beneficial collective relationships.

The Codes are not binding but rather aim to change behaviours & encourage bargaining partners to do things differently. Success will depend on how parties prepare & adapt their new or renewed relationships using the guides.

The Workshop will be interactive & cover sections on: –

  • Knowledge & understanding about the new Accords.
  • Tips & ideas on translating the Codes into new generation recognition agreements & subsidiary rules, such as those relating to pickets.
  • Bringing needs-based bargaining to life, including the importance of joint preparation about negotiations, what it means to commit to good faith bargaining, how this impacts on rational demands and settlement areas, & the relevance of having roadmaps from initial proposals to final agreements.  Indicators will be given about key clauses to be introduced into settlement agreements.
  • Handling deadlock in negotiations, including defining areas of agreement & disagreement
  • The role of alternative dispute resolution.
  • Ideas for ensuring peaceful industrial action, pickets & the role of public order police.

Mike and Nerine will share practical lessons and realistic expectations about possible changes in behaviours based on their own experience in collective disputes.
