Good Faith Bargaining

Good faith bargaining is the cornerstone of effective labor-management relations. It means that both parties communicate and negotiate, that they match proposals with counterproposals, and that both make every reasonable effort to arrive at an agreement. It does not mean that one party compels another to agree to a proposal.
