Our firm has made and presented many courses teaching advocacy skills to union representatives.
Basic courses cover the elements of the grievance, arguing a grievance during the grievance procedure, the referral to arbitration, preliminary objections, and more. Advanced advocacy training courses include advocacy skills like opening statements, developing arguments, and cross examination.
We design courses that focus on particular areas of the law relevant to the client: discipline and discharge, innocent absenteeism, or disability issues (including the duty to accommodate) are only a few examples.
We are more than willing to discuss with clients the topics and content they need to be trained in.
