Labour–Management Consultation

Learn the keys to union-management relations.

Are you a member of your Labour-Management Consultation Committee (LMCC)? This two-day workshop is for LMCC members who want to be on the leading edge of the transformation and modernization of labour-management relations in the federal public service. Deepen your understanding of meaningful and effective consultation and the roles and responsibilities of LMCC members. You will review tools and procedures to fulfill the mandate of the committee and work with other participants to create a vision for the future and a plan for its implementation.
