Consensus. The District and Association shall work through disagreements and challenges respectfully, in a manner that acknowledges the legal and political roles of each party and promotes the greatest possible consensus across the District. Consensus requires time to process information and to truly understand and represent the interests of constituencies.
Consensus. Decisions will be made by a consensus of a quorum of the group. There will be two tries at a strict consensus. If that is not achieved, a decision may be made over the dissent of one person from each side. Only data on final consensus for each level will be maintained in the job evaluation database.
Consensus. A consensus of the entire committee present at any meeting will first be attempted, to see if everyone can live with the proposed decision. If that is not possible, decisions can be made over the dissent of a maximum of one person from each side present at the meeting. If more than one person from each side dissents, there is not a decision. (One person saying “no” does get paid attention to).
Consensus. There are scenarios in which the negotiation process aims at finding a specific value for a negotiation subject (one or more properties). However, there is not a list of predefined alternatives. The negotiator who conducts the negotiation have to find wisely an alternative that should be agreed by most negotiators. Such a sought value may be determined by means of a sequence of closed ballots. The leader chooses the values for the properties, creates an offer and submits this offer to a closed ballot. If the issue is not approved, the leader chooses another assignment to the properties (creating a new offer) and runs another ballot. This process repeats until there is a successful assignment or the leader gives up. The leader might submit several RFIs before running the ballot sequence intending to infer the negotiator’s preferences. Thus, the leader may have an educated guess when choosing values for the successive ballots.
Consensus. With respect to those matters that must be presented to the Steering Committee, the Parties intend that every effort should be made to have each such matter approved by a consensus of the Members. Consensus is reached when it becomes evident through deliberation that every Member, at the very least, does not oppose a decision. In its deliberations, the Steering Committee shall use appropriate tools for developing consensus, and shall seek to exhaust every reasonable and practicable effort to reach consensus.
