Negotiations. (A) All collective bargaining is to be conducted with state representatives designated for that purpose by the Governor, as chief executive officer. While negotiating meetings shall normally be held in Tallahassee, the state and the Union may agree to meet elsewhere at a state facility or other location which involves no rental cost to the state. There shall be no negotiation between the Union and the state at other levels of state government.
Negotiations. At the written request of a Party, each Party will appoint a knowledgeable, responsible representative to meet and negotiate in good faith to resolve any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement. The Parties intend that these negotiations be conducted by non-lawyer, business representatives. The location, format, frequency, duration, and conclusion of these discussions shall be left to the discretion of the representatives. Upon agreement, the representatives may utilize other alternative dispute resolution procedures such as mediation to assist in the negotiations. Discussions and correspondence among the representatives for purposes of these negotiations shall be treated as confidential information developed for purposes of settlement, exempt from discovery, and shall not be admissible in the arbitration described below or in any lawsuit without the concurrence of all Parties. Documents identified in or provided with such communications, which are not prepared for purposes of the negotiations, are not so exempted and may, if otherwise discoverable, be discovered or otherwise admissible, be admitted in evidence, in the arbitration or lawsuit.
Negotiations. The Parties must attempt in good faith to resolve all disputes arising out of, related to or in connection with this Agreement promptly by negotiation, as follows. Any Party may give the other Party written notice of any dispute not resolved in the normal course of business. Executives of both Parties at levels one level above the personnel who have previously been involved in the dispute must meet at a mutually acceptable time and place within ten days after delivery of such notice, and thereafter as often as they reasonably deem necessary, to exchange relevant information and to attempt to resolve the dispute. If the matter has not been resolved within 30 days after the referral of the dispute to such senior executives, or if no meeting of such senior executives has taken place within 15 days after such referral, either Party may initiate a dispute resolution method as provided hereinafter if neither Party has requested that the dispute be mediated in accordance with Section (2) below. All negotiations pursuant to this clause are confidential.
Negotiations. The terms and provisions of this Agreement are the result of arm’s length and good faith negotiations on the part of Seller and equal bargaining power of the Parties. No principle of law or equity regarding construing ambiguities in this Agreement against the drafting Party shall apply.
Negotiations. From and after the date hereof until the earlier of the Closing or the termination of this Agreement, no party to this Agreement nor its officers or directors (subject to such director's fiduciary duties) nor anyone acting on behalf of any party or other persons shall, directly or indirectly, encourage, solicit, engage in discussions or negotiations with, or provide any information to, any person, firm, or other entity or group concerning any merger, sale of substantial assets, purchase or sale of shares of capital stock or similar transaction involving any party. A party shall promptly communicate to any other party any inquiries or communications concerning any such transaction which they may receive or of which they may become aware of.

Negotiations. A. The parties acknowledge that during the negotiations which resulted in this Agreement, each had the unlimited right and opportunity to make demands and proposals with respect to any subject or matter not removed by law from the areas of collective bargaining and that the understandings and agreements arrived at by the parties after the exercise of that right and opportunity are set forth in this Agreement. Therefore, the Board and the Association, for the life of this Agreement, each voluntarily and unqualifiedly waives the right, and each agrees that the other shall not be obligated to bargain collectively with respect to any subject or matter not specifically referred to or covered in the Agreement, except for matters which are subject to the grievance procedure as provided in Article XVI hereof, even though each subject or matter may not have been within the knowledge or contemplation of either or both of the parties at the time that they negotiated or signed this Agreement.
Negotiations. Either party to this Agreement may select for itself such negotiator or negotiators for purposes of carrying on conferences and negotiations under the provisions of Section 111.70, Wisconsin Statutes, as such party may determine. No consent from either party shall be required in order to name such negotiator or negotiators.
