Negotiation is taught in business schools and law schools the world over, but collective bargaining is a unique species of negotiation that requires specialized knowledge and experience. The Centre for Industrial Relations and Human Resources at the University of Toronto is one of the few academic institutions to incorporate specialized education in collective bargaining into a professional degree program. Now, in partnership with Lancaster House, the CIRHR is extending the opportunity to benefit from this training to all labour relations professionals, lawyers, bargaining committee members, and union executives and staff.
