"The training was excellent. The combination of CTA staff and the district's attorney working together raised the level of trust. With our school restructuring and going to more site-based management, interest-based bargaining seems even more appropriate."
Art Mayer, Superintendent
Hanford Jt. Union High School District

"The skills taught are basic and very powerful. Not only are they applicable to bargaining but also to restructuring. The training creates an environment that allows frank and open discussion. We've solved some very sticky issues using this process."
Jerry Dannenberg, Assistant Superintendent
"Before the training, we were attempting to bargain collaboratively, but had no guidelines for doing so effectively. The CTA's IBB training program gave us a methodology we could use to stay focused and reach agreement."
Jill Levesque, President
Piner-Olivet Educators Association
"Training is the key. It enabled us to fully master the skills and offered us the opportunity to know and understand the other side of the table."
