It all started when a group of sailors on board a ship discovered a crossword puzzle titled “Captain’s Agreement” in their onboard recreational area. The puzzle, filled with nautical terms and industry-specific jargon, piqued the sailors’ curiosity and sparked conversations about their current collective agreement.
Realizing that the crossword puzzle could serve as a valuable tool for discussing and understanding the terms of their agreement, the sailors decided to present their findings to their union representatives at the Northern Lights College Collective Agreement.

They believed that by solving the puzzle together, both the sailors and the management could better understand the existing agreement’s strengths and weaknesses, ultimately leading to a more effective and mutually beneficial agreement.

By collectively analyzing the characteristics of a purchase agreement mentioned in the puzzle, the sailors and management were able to identify gaps and ambiguities in their current agreement.
Encouraged by the fruitful discussions, the parties involved decided to explore the possibility of revising and negotiating a tripartite free trade agreement that would address the identified issues and provide a solid foundation for their future working relationship.
However, before proceeding with the negotiations, the sailors and the management sought guidance from an expert in contract management. They referred to the Navy Contract Management Process Guide to ensure that they followed a systematic and fair approach in revising their collective agreement.

They consulted legal experts to understand the concept of frustration in contracts and ensure that their revised agreement would not fall under the category of an agreement is frustrated.
With the guidance of legal experts and armed with a thorough understanding of their current agreement’s strengths and weaknesses, the sailors and the management are now ready to enter into negotiations for a new collective agreement.
