In your essay, address the three prompts below. Which party (union or management) would likely be in a stronger position to:
bargain for an improved health care plan;
organize a strike, walkout, or lockout; and
create an unfair labor practice?
Consider the three questions above within the context of the following two scenarios:
high profits, an expanding market share, a healthy economy, and the cost of living rising less than 2% per year; and
low profits, stagnant sales growth, uncertain economic conditions, and a projected 4% annual rise in cost of living.
Be sure to include rationale for your responses to all three questions, and make certain you consider how the answers may change depending on the two scenarios presented above. Your essay must be a minimum of two pages in length, not counting the title page and references page. You are required to use one outside resource beyond your textbook (blogs are not acceptable). Use APA Style to cite and reference all quoted and paraphrased material, including your textbook.
