The purpose of this topic is for you to again role-play an actual negotiation session with the goal of developing a collective bargaining agreement. The specific topic to be negotiated is related to employee wages and benefits. In this topic, your team will switch sides from the previous role played in the Module Three discussion.
First, watch the accompanying video to get each sides perspective on the employee wages and benefits issue.
The instructor has provided a rough framework of a collective bargaining agreement in the resources section for this module that provides some level of detail on the issue and how the agreement is currently worded. This will serve as the starting point for your negotiations. Teams are expected to research the topic and craft the language in the agreement to favor their position by Thursday of this week at the latest. Then, teams should use the Discussion Topic as a negotiating platform to role-play a dialogue with the opposing side in order to craft the specific language required in the agreement. The object is to rewrite the agreement with the gains and concessions finally agreed to in the negotiation.
As in the previous negotiation session in Module Three, if both sides cannot agree by the end of this module, the instructor will act in the role of mediator/arbitrator and will decide on the final language, which all parties are required to accept. In this event, the instructor will post the final agreement/document in the topic by midnight on Tuesday of the following module. This agreement will be used in Milestone Two, due next week.
