2022 NEARI Winter Bargaining Conference

Negotiating or renegotiating a contract? Join NEARI via Zoom for our Winter Bargaining Conference on February 12 from 8:30 a.m. to 11:15 am. for a day of engagement and training to assist you and your team in success at the bargaining table.

Anticipated participants are those Local teams who are negotiating a contract for their unit this year or next year, but also those looking to sharpen their bargaining skills. We encourage members of a local to come as team, if possible.

This year, we are offering the conference at no additional cost to our members.
