The Labour-Management Relations Certificate Program

The Labour-Management Relations Certificate program offered by the Edwards School of Business and the Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy is an intensive 5-day program intended for union representatives, human resource and labour relations managers, consultants, neutrals, and people who operate in unionized environments. 

The program covers collective bargaining, grievance arbitration, mediation, legislation, financial literacy and emerging workplace issues. It offers a rare opportunity for union, management and neutrals to trade perspectives and share ideas under the leadership of experts in the field. 

This interactive program will:

  • Address major issues surrounding collective bargaining, grievance arbitration, mediation, legislation and labour board remedies.
  • Provide bargaining simulation experience and practical tools.
  • Cover topics from broad political and economic contexts.
  • Allow an opportunity for union, management, and neutrals to collaborate and generate solutions that add value for all parties in a safe learning environment.



"This program is for people who do labour relations.  Come join us and learn new skills and perspecitves from academic and industry leaders while strengthening your connection to the professional community across Western Canada.  This is an intense week with an ambitious agenda.  Come prepared to work hard."

Scott Walsworth, Academic Program Director
