When union members and management collaborate to improve care and job quality, everyone wins. Labor-management collaboration opens lines of communication and increases buy-in at all levels while minimizing roadblocks.
Labor and management collaboration works best when both union and management understand where their interests intersect and where they diverge. As a neutral party focused mainly on the areas where interests intersect, the Labor Management Project helps both groups achieve their mutual interests: satisfied patients/residents and workers, quality care, and cost efficiency. See these literature reviews and outcomes reports for more on the benefits of labor-management partnership.
