Enterprise Agreements / Bargaining

In most cases, parties will negotiate their agreements without any call on outside resources. However, there may be circumstances where it makes sense to use the services of a facilitator:

The facilitator may help in the general preparation for bargaining, including information-sharing and fact-finding. During the bargaining exchange itself, the facilitator may act as mediator, reality-tester and option-provider, amongst other things.

The facilitator does not make decisions and cannot bind the parties to a particular outcome. It remains for the parties to make their own deal.
