Consultation is a constructive exercise to promote understanding and problem solving between the Institute and the employer, at a level appropriate to resolve the issues in an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust. This means providing information and seeking opinions and advice from those affected. Consultation is essential in building relationships; it is an ongoing process not limited to formal meetings between the parties.
