Assignment 2: Labor Relations
Use the Internet to research a publicly traded U.S.-based company with a focus on its labor negotiating practices and any specific labor-related issues the company may be experiencing.
Write a page paper in which you:
Discuss the company’s stance toward labor and any specific labor-related issues it may be experiencing.
Formulate a strategy for negotiating a labor agreement and dealing with potential impasses in the bargaining process.
Analyze the principle economic and administrative issues addressed during collective bargaining with your labor force and develop a bargaining position.
Recommend policies and procedures to administer a labor contract and resolve disputes.
Determine the most likely interest dispute and determine how you could leverage economic pressure to help resolve that dispute.
Based upon your understanding of the entire course, predict the next evolutionary step in labor-management relationships (in terms of laws, key participants, or union organization) and how that step will affect the company you researched.
Use at least three (3) quality references. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not quality as academic resources.
