Research a recent event in the
news related to industrial and labor negotiations. The purpose of the
assignment is to stimulate discussion and sharing your thoughts and opinions of
current labor negotiations either at the national, state or local level.
Once you have researched the
event, and included a brief overview of your research, discuss your
answers to the questions listed below.
1. Describe the dispute between labor and management.
2. What interested you in the article or the dispute?
3. What would you recommend if you were selected to mediate the
negotiation between management and labor?
4. What did you learn from your research?
Post your answers to the
Discussion Board under Week Three (forum set-up) so that other students can
read and respond to your answers. Your content and logic used when
responding to the questions are an integral part of the course grade
percent earned for this assignment. Make sure you post by the stated
deadline in week three.
Students must comment/respond
to at least one other student’s answers about the researched event.
Comments are to be made with references to specific course content and
can include work experiences as a backdrop to the comments. In other words,
your comments are to be additive to the original research.
