HR / Labor Relations

MBI offers special members-only pricing at the Winter Conference, called the ‘Performance Track Package Pricing.’  This special package pricing is available to MBI members for training courses available at the conference on Tuesday, February 28th.  The Performance Track Package fee entitles participants to choose the seminar combination that provides the best value and you can send as many employees as you want for only $1,500.  The fee for each session on Tuesday is $175.  So if you had 10 employees attend both sessions at the regular prices, you would pay $3,500.  But with the Performance Track Package, you would only pay $1,500!  So basically, the more employees you send from your company, the more money you save!  The CPR / First Aid / AED Certification sessions and the awards events held on Tuesday are not included in this special pricing for Tuesday offerings.  

Dealing with workforce issues such as complex state and federal employment regulations, labor relations, wage negotiations, affirmative action policies and employment discrimination is often the biggest headache for a company. MBI employs a labor relations specialist who provides members with a full range of services to assist them in dealing with workforce issues, including the following:

  • Collective Bargaining - MBI assists in preparation for and execution of the collective bargaining process for its signatory collective bargaining members.
  • Union Relations - As well as negotiating contracts, MBI's staff coordinates and interprets labor agreements, monitors Taft Hartley fringe benefits funds, provides arbitration services, and assists member companies in dealing with grievances and other disputes and the unions.
