IDRL 305 was designed to meet the needs of unionists and human resources managers who are involved in or could be involved in collective bargaining, as well as students who simply want to better understand this important Canadian institution. The Challenge for Credit process allows students to demonstrate that they have mastered the expertise, knowledge, intellectual and/or other skills normally found in university studies. In such cases, a strike vote shows that union members support their bargaining team and are ready to support them, if necessary, through union action. It is precisely when employers, as in the AU, are engaged in difficult negotiations, that it may be necessary to demonstrate this support before the employer conducts the kind of creative consensual negotiations that are necessary to reach a successful agreement. Of course, unions should never bluff when it comes to labour disputes. Members who vote in favour of a strike must also be prepared to go on strike if a resolution around the table proves impossible. Expectations for collegial engagement: This Landing Group is intended for AUFA members and for the common use and discussion of issues of common interest to AUFA issues, such as understanding the collective agreement, sharing event and action announcements, etc. This landing group is not there to monitor cases of maladministration, discuss negotiations or reveal other matters that are normally confidential.
