Public Sector Labor Negotiations and Workforce Cost-Cutting in a COVID-19 Economy
With public finances and the economy projected to continue their severe decline due to COVID-19 and related government action, public employers must consider how to address their financial bottom-line during labor negotiations and with their workforce budgets. This webinar will explore what public employers are planning for wage settlements and benefits and cost-cutting with their workforce. Practical and legal strategies will be discussed for negotiating economic and language items and implementing cost-cutting measures with the public workforce related to wage and benefit freezes, reducing work hours, furloughs, voluntary separation incentives, layoffs, and subcontracting.
