Union Built PC and Collective Bargaining International Announce Strategic Alliance
Agreement will empower Labor Unions with Digital Tools for Collective Bargaining and Real Time Grievance Tracking
VANCOUVER, BC / NEW YORK, NY (PHANTOM POWER MARKETING) March 2, 2016 – Union Built PC Inc. and Collective Bargaining International Inc. are the leading experts in Collective Bargaining and Grievance Tracking Labor Software. Combining the skill-sets of their respective teams and product offerings, both the companies and the Labor Industry stand to benefit.
“It just makes sense to make the Collective Bargaining process a digital one. We’ve literally tried to think of everything a union might need at the bargaining table and put it into Negotiator’s Advantage™,” says Fred Romanuk, CEO of Collective Bargaining Inc.
“Negotiating the Collective Bargaining Agreement is the most important job of the Union. It is critical to the success of the Union and the representation of their membership. Our mission is the improvement of the collective bargaining process,” he adds.
This partnership also provides an opportunity for Union Built PC Inc. and Collective Bargaining International Inc. to work collaboratively on product development, marketing and software sales.
“We quickly recognized these opportunities beyond just our mutual teams. For example, the integration of Union Built PC’s Grievance Manager Application and Collective Bargaining International’s Negotiator’s Advantage Software creates an extremely powerful tool at bargaining and arbitration,” says Barry Diederich, VP Software Development of Union Built PC.
Collective Bargaining International Inc. has developed Negotiator’s Advantage™, a real-time, cloud-based, complete set of digitally automated collective agreement tools. A powerful Application that builds and tracks proposals and counter proposals, dramatically speeds up proposal research, development and automatically builds the MOA and Final Contract.
Union Built PC Inc. developed their Grievance Manager™ Software in 2006, enabling the Labor Industry to track their Grievance, Arbitration and related documents in Real Time. Since then consistent updates and upgrades have been made to the software to keep the system current with evolving technology trends and customized to the needs of the Labor Industry.
The immediate result of this alliance means Union Built PC can resell Collective Bargaining International’s Negotiator’s Advantage™ and integrate it with Union Built PC’s Grievance Manager™.
“We are thrilled to be integrating Negotiator’s Advantage™ into our robust Grievance Manager software so we can offer our Union clients a totally integrated and comprehensive bargaining tool,” says Pete Marchese, CEO at Union Built PC, Inc.
“Our Mission has always been to help Unions excel, and this strategic alliance will give Labor a leg up during the critical collective bargaining and grievance and arbitration management process,” adds Marchese.
