City of Atlantic City: Negotiating

 

The formal bargaining process generally begins when the Union presents its proposals at the negotiating table, at a time and place agreed to by both sides. The process the Union goes through to figure out what proposals to present usually includes looking at:

  • What the workforce’s experience has shown is “broken” in the old contract, and what therefore needs to get “fixed” in the new one.
  • How to balance the needs and expectations of various groups of employees represented by the Union, which will sometimes be quite different or even in conflict.
  • What the Union itself needs so it can function as an effective advocate for its members.
  • The reality of what’s happening in other workplaces, or in society generally. (i.e. inflation)
