Despite significant advances in meeting and collaboration technology over the past decade, face-to-face meetings have still widely been considered essential for labor/management partners engaged in bargaining, training, and facilitation.  Little (if anything) else would suffice.  The COVID-19 pandemic forced us all to test that thinking—perhaps a long-overdue exercise.  Instead of waiting for COVID-19 exposure risks to pass, parties are adapting, using technologies such as those offered by the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS).  Participants of this webinar will hear about innovative approaches taken and facilitated by FMCS and see how online platforms can replicate (and, under more normal circumstances, could also enhance) in-person labor relations activities such as collective bargaining, joint problem-solving, grievance mediation, and training.
