Interest-Based Bargaining Institute

The Interest-Based Bargaining Institute (IBBI) offers training and direct technical assistance to school districts wishing to transform the way they engage in contract negotiations, moving from a positional and often adversarial process to one grounded in a full exploration of the parties’ shared and competing interests. School districts that adopt an interest-based approach to their bargaining commonly achieve contracts that more fully respond to the needs of students and adults, by enabling labor, management and the communities they serve to work together more effectively on their shared mission of advancing student success.
