Sale price$41.99


Model Contract Clauses is an easy-to-use reference manual. Each contract subject includes: an introduction to each contract subject; a "drafting guide" to each subject; a "plain English" summary of the sample clauses; actual model clauses; and pages for taking notes and drafting proposals. Most sections have between three and five sample clauses. The clauses have been selected for being representative examples of clauses you might expect to find in most labor agreements. The idea is to expose the reader to as many different types of solutions to these bargaining issues as possible. What is this book? This is both a reference guide and a workbook. It can be effectively used to learn some of the finer points of collective bargaining strategy, particularly regarding effective drafting. It can also be used "on the fly" during negotiations to help refine proposals and counterproposals. The core design principle of this text is practicality. You will use it in one or more of the following ways: A reference to actual contract language. Employers or unions in contract negotiations can use the sample clauses in this book as models for their own proposals. An employer, for example, responding to a proposal on seniority provisions may not be aware of the many different ways that companies and unions have agreed to handle these problems in the past.Phillip B.
