Effective Contract Administration

Once the parties have reached agreement on a contract, the work of implementing begins. For a contract to be successful, labor and management must translate the contract from language to practice. The administration of a collective bargaining agreement and the ability and willingness of the front-line supervisor and the shop steward to work together effectively are the foundation of this application. The FMCS contract administration training emphasizes relationship-building and the definition and understanding of leadership roles. A focus is placed on the development of knowledge of the communication skills and Labor/Management leadership roles necessary for a productive working relationship.
