This workshop is going to review the basics of collective bargaining and employment and take attendees through the process. If you are unfamiliar – or just uncomfortable – with the principles of negotiations, unions and the laws that surround the employment of school employees in Ohio, this seminar is what you've been looking for. Van D. Keating, OSBA director of management services, will start with the fundamentals of employment and collective bargaining laws and union and management rights and responsibilities and work their way to the larger picture of how these topics interrelate and occasionally contradict. The various roles of board members, administrators, state agencies, consultants and mediators also will be covered. Most importantly, this workshop will allow participants to ask questions and focus on issues that their districts are encountering.
