The second session, Understanding & Quantifying Contract Terms, covered such topics as subcontracting clauses, anti-dual shop clauses, PAC check-off clauses, industry fund clauses, substance abuse testing clauses, hiring hall clauses, and jurisdictional dispute clauses, as well as how to “cost out” a contract. 

The third session, Preparing for and Negotiating at the Bargaining Table, covered such topics as bargaining team organization, planning logistics, deciding strategy, reviewing background information, setting objectives, preparing proposals, gathering and using data, negotiation strategies and techniques, bargaining table "do's and don'ts," and activity between sessions.  Boldt and Gasperow
