Kaplan negotiates new agreement with New York News Guild

Clients Kaplan International

Jones Day served as chief negotiator for Kaplan International in its contract renewal negotiations with the New York News Guild. The new contract preserves Kaplan International's strong management rights to operate its English Language Schools in New York, without union challenges through arbitration or mid-term bargaining demands. The contract also provides for discretionary merit pay instead of guaranteed annual increases for Kaplan International's teachers.
