Webinar – Adjusting Collective Bargaining for Health and Safety Plans
Jul 15, 2020 • 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Many or most collective bargaining agreements (CBA) contain provisions that could greatly restrict the flexibility and creativity in managing human resources that is necessary for reopening schools in accordance with COVID-related health and safety guidelines. Examples include the structure of workdays, planning time and office hours, extra duties, voluntary and involuntary reassignments, limits on numbers of staff simultaneously using leave, faculty meeting requirements, additional training, and flexibility in scheduling to accommodate personal responsibilities of staff. A panel of experienced labor attorneys will discuss the kinds of CBA provisions that may require adjustment for reopening plans to be implemented effectively, and approaches for working collaboratively with unions to achieve the needed flexibility.
