Partner James J. McGovern III will speak at an upcoming Public Employment Relations Commission (PERC) regional labor-management conference on June 21, 2019 in Albany New York. The conference is presented by the North Eastern Consortium of State Labor Relations Agencies.
Mr. McGovern’s presentation, entitled, “So Happy Together? The Care and Feeding of Healthy Collective Bargaining Relationships” will be joined by Amy Lamontagne, Asst. Town Manager, Town of Falmouth (ME); John Langan, Director, Office of Employee Relations, Commonweath of Massachusetts (MA); Alan McDonald, Esq., McDonald Lamond Canzoneri (MA); Sergeant Jeffrey Pardue, Falmouth Police Department, Falmouth (ME); and Steven P. Weissman, Esq., Weissman & Mintz (NJ).
Do they need “couples therapy” or can they work it out on their own? Pairs of panelists from both sides of the table will share their successes and challenges in creating and maintaining stable, productive and cooperative collective bargaining relationships as a means of avoiding and resolving labor disputes. Attendees will enjoy a stimulating discussion about the processes and results of negotiations and where they go from here.
